The Kaj Franck Design Prize was awarded for the 28th time this autumn. For the first time, the receiver, instead of one single designer, was a group: the six partners of the design agency Aivan.
The Kaj Franck Design Prize is a recognition of an outstanding designer career. Congratulations Jarkko Jämsén, Minka Koukkunen, Aleksi Kuokka, Antti Mäkelä, Aki Suvanto and Saku Sysiö!
