IF Publication

Our brand new IF Publication, “Duddjot”, offers a kaleidoscopic view into contemporary Sámi culture, bringing forth voices and themes from Sápmi, the Sámi country-. Under the flaming red cover, you can find 125 pages of articles and interviews about the Sámi, giving thus a more in-depth insight into our autumn program and the exhibition Duddjot. Besides the written content, the reader can get further insight into the culture via photographs, playlists or even recipes that are all in line with our themes of this autumn. The publication also contains all the dates and event not-to-miss this autumn at the institute. The publication is written both in French and English. Get your free copy at Institut finlandais!

Red Dot Award: Brands & Communication Design 2019

In 2018, Institut finlandais’ premises were thoroughly redesigned by Studio Joanna Laajisto and Littow Architectes, while respecting the original work by Juhani Pallasmaa in 1985.

The renovation of the premises went hand in hand with the renewal of the institute’s visual identity under the artistic direction of Piëtke Visser, aiming to portray a side of Finland that is natural, sophisticated and timeless all at once.

From brand new typeface created by Juho Hiilivirta and Niklas Ekholm (Helsinki Type Studio) to website redesign, every detail is carefully thought out to be conceptually rooted in cultural exchange through connected cursive typography and delicate yet confident contrasts.

The visual identity renewal was awarded the Red Dot Award: Brands & Communication Design 2019 that recognises high quality and innovative works in the field of design and visual communication.

The award ceremony took place on November 1st in Berlin.
