Tallinn Design House displays an exhibition “Shifting Shapes” at the Embassy of Estonia. It is a quest for intriguing colour and form dialogues and the essence of Estonian design values, intertwining playful expression and design brands.
The exhibition concept is designed by Kristel Laurits – an Estonian concept and interior designer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. A colourful adventure of “Shifting Shapes” presents emerging and established furniture and lighting companies from Estonia – providing a high quality and aesthetic range of design items in a transformed and beautiful setting of The Embassy of Estonia.
