Kai Frank (1911-1989), called “The Finnish Design Rabbit”, is one of the best creators who brought many cores in 20th century design.
This exhibition will be Japan's first large-scale solo exhibition, the Finnish Glass Museum, Finland's only public glass research institution, and Tauno & Risa Tarna, who collects many products obtained directly from Kai Frank himself. This is an international traveling exhibition that is made up of collections and focuses on the geometrical modeling of the work. This exhibition, which is also Japan's first solo exhibition, will exhibit about 300 items, including products that are still well-known as long-sellers today, as well as glass works that are called art pieces.
In addition, when he came to Japan in the 1950s, he introduced the scenery of Japan and photographs of the people of Ichii, and the footprints of great designers who represented Finland and loved Japan. I will follow.

1. Japan's first solo exhibition of a Finnish designer
This exhibition will be an international traveling exhibition focusing on geometric modeling by Kai Frank, who was called “Conscience of Finnish Design” because he created many everyday products. Based on an exhibition held at the Finnish Glass Museum in 2018, this exhibition consists of the collection of the museum and a collection of Mr. Tauno Tarna, a designer who was deeply intimate with Kai Frank. 300 pieces will be exhibited, and representative works suitable for Japan's first solo exhibition will be introduced.
2. The first Japanese photo taken by Frank who loved Japan
Kai Frank has had a special interest in Japan since childhood and read books about Japan. In 1956, he fulfilled his long-awaited first visit to Japan and met many prominent craftsmen while visiting casual Japanese villages and potters and interacting with people and craftsmen living there. I paid attention to handwork and design. In this exhibition, we will carefully select and introduce precious photographs taken on the date and time of visit, and see the gaze that Kai Frank has poured into Japan.
