At the Design Museum’s Lunch Talk, guests can meet the creators behind the Soil Matters exhibition. The curators of the exhibition, Riikka Latva-Somppi and Maarit Mäkelä, talk about the project and discuss the materiality of soil through the themes of the exhibition. In the Soil Matters exhibition, designers, artisans and artists explore the relationship between earth and man by working on experimental design projects on the subject. The event will discuss, among other things, soil remodelling, land contaminated by the glass industry and the role of plants in land remediation.
