Pekka Harni participates as one of the selectors of the best Finnish wooden artefacts for The Best of Finnish Wood exhibition at the the Craft Museum of Finland.

The exhibition pieces are chosen by a group of around 40 people, all deeply rooted or firmly joint into the wood industry. They share their thoughts and experiences on what they believe are the best Finnish wood artefacts of all times, describe their relationship with Finnish forest and wood, and evaluate the future of the Finnish wood industry. The objects chosen for the exhibition have either personal significance to the panel members, or represent the outstanding form, functionality, sustainability or innovation of Finnish design. The exhibition uncovers Finnish wood, from the roots to the leaf tips. The display includes unique, handmade artefacts, mass-produced classics and tomorrow’s fresh favourites.

The Best of Finnish Wood exhibition is produced by the Craft Museum of Finland (Jyväskylä) and Lusto The Finnish Forest Museum (Punkaharju). The planning of the exhibition was supervised by an expert team, chaired by the interior designer, Professor Simo Heikkilä.
