Design is alive in the daily life of Finnish homes 11.9.2015
Another of September's releases is the Everyday Design stamp booklet created by graphic designer Ilkka Kärkkäinen and featuring Finnish designers and their classic products from different eras. The stamps remind us of the fact that stylishly designed practical objects have been a typical element of daily life in Finnish homes for several decades.
The stamps in the booklet depict the Solifer moped by Richard Lindh, the Kukkuluuruu fabric designed for Marimekko by Sanna Annukka, the Block lamp by Harri Koskinen, the Paratiisi plate by Birger Kaipiainen, the Mademoiselle lounge chair by Ilmari Tapiovaara and the Ultima Thule glass by Tapio Wirkkala.
The Everyday Design stamp booklet continues the series of stamps to mark the centennial year of Finnish independence to be celebrated in 2017.
Thank you Ella for this lovely FDC.
