Consular Corps Event at Modern Art Museum EMMA in Espoo

Consular Corps had a great pleasure to visit EMMA museum in Espoo, Finland with an internationally unique collection of Finnish ceramics and glass art, collected by Mr. Kyösti Kakkonen, well-known businessman and Honorary Consul of Hungary who also hosted the visitors into the magic of his collection.

Bridging the gap between art and design, Collection Kakkonen has been brought together over the course of 35 years by prominent businessman and collector Kyösti Kakkonen, subsequently gaining recognition as the most significant collection of unique and limited-edition Finnish glass and ceramics in the world.

Mr. Johan Grotenfelt, Dean of Consular Corps and Hon. Consul of Nicaragua thanked the host, Mr. Kyösti Kakkonen, Hon. Consul of Hungary for wonderful visit.

Collection Kakkonen includes more than 10,000 items, of which 1,300 works are lent to EMMA in a long-term co-operation agreement with specific highlights being exhibited regularly. Design classics and works by some of the most important artists and designers from the golden age of Finnish design (1930s–60s) to today will be exhibited alongside next generation figures, creating an unparalleled insight into the story of Finnish craftsmanship. The exhibition is a collaboration between Kyösti Kakkonen, EMMA and the City of Espoo and it has been curated by EMMA’s curator Aura Vilkuna. The exhibition architecture has been designed by design studio Aivan.
