Designgalleriet presents ”The 100 year old next door”

In conjunction with the Finnish centennial the two Finnish artists and designers Camilla Forsén-Ström and Johanna Högväg are showing a joint exhibition at Designgalleriet. The exhibition explores the neighbourhood between Finland and Sweden. Finland is the neighbour that you are aware of, but don’t really know.
