Yrj Kukkapuro – Magic Room

EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Espoo

  • 1.3.2023–28.1.2024

EMMA is proud to present the colourful, imaginative and experimental oeuvre of an influential pioneer of Finnish design, Yrj Kukkapuro.

 

Yrj Kukkapuro – Magic Room is an exhibition marking the occasion of the designers 90th birthday, presenting his iconic designs alongside his greatest long-term source of inspiration – art.

Magic Room highlights parallels between Kukkapuros designs and modern and postmodern art. The designer's most enduring source inspiration was his spouse, the printmaker Irmeli Kukkapuro (1934–2022). The exhibition architecture is based on the Magic Room concept developed by Kukkapuro in the 1980s, which displays furniture in the form of an installation using various structures and lighting effects.

Alongside Yrj Kukkapuros designs, Magic Room also features works by his contemporaries and present-day artists: Timo Aalto, Jacob Dahlgren, Beryl Furman, Esa Laurema, Vladimir Kopteff, Kristian Krokfors, Irmeli Kukkapuro, Matti Kujasalo,Jussi Niva, Lars-Gunnar Nordstrm, Kristiina Nyrhinen, Tarja Pitknen- Walter, Airi Snellman-Hnninen, Mari Sunna and Osmo Valtonen.
