Out of the Blue: The Essence and Ambition of Finnish Design

Gestalten's latest title, Out of the Blue, showcases Finland's unique design culture. This book looks at legendary figures like Alvar Aalto and heritage manufacturers such as Marimekko, Iitalla, and Artek, as well as a new contemporary generation of chefs, explorers, makers, and entrepreneurs.

Edited by Laura Houseley and Marko Ahtisaari, the book is a window on Finnish design and product culture as well as a lesson in how Nokia mirrors the typical Finnish characteristics of inventiveness, community spirit, love of liberty, and ongoing transformation.
