The theme of Design Finland Playing Cards is Finnish design from the 1900s and early 2000s.
The suits are divided as follows: Spades: ceramics and glassware, Hearts: furniture and lamps, Diamonds: textiles, clothes and jewellery, Clubs: equipment and tools.
The Kings, Queens and Jacks are designers and who are literally clothed in their own creations. The numbered cards depict design objects and the two jokers are persons who have had a significant influence in Finnish design.
What, then, is design? Distinct art objects, practical furniture, everyday tools, imaginative fashion and much more… Put your cards on the table, and get a glimpse into the fascinating world of design.
