20TH CENTURY FINLAND EXPLORED

The Suomi Finland 1900 Exhibition is dedicated to the first decades of Finnish independence, from 1917 to around the early 1980's.

When the opportunity arose to re-instate the exhibition in 2012, the National Museum of Finland were keen to find new and innovative display solutions in order to give the galleries a fresh new look.

ClickNetherfield provided three circular showcases to represent three significant turning points in the 'storyline' of the museum. The first showcase contains objects connected with the civil war in Finland in 1918, and it acts as a centrepiece for that particular gallery. The second showcase contains objects relating to the Second World War; and the third tells of everyday life during the 1950's and the period of reconstruction after the war. The objects contained within each case are mainly items of clothing and costumes displayed on manikins representing the people from each of these periods. Because the showcases are visually linked to one another visitors can clearly see one momentous moment in Finnish history to the next as they move through the galleries.

The quality and finish of the showcases is excellent.
