Estonian Applied Art and Design Museum
Estonian design – the beginning, classics, and today
Located in Tallinn Old Town, in a granary from the 17th century the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design focuses on Estonian applied art and design of the 20th century and the present. The collection includes textiles, ceramics, porcelain, leather, glass, jewelry, and metal, as well as design collections and archives.
The museum’s permanent exhibitions introduce the history of Estonian design. The museum tells stories about plywood manufacturer Luther, plastic goods manufacturer Estoplast, and the producers of experimental furniture, up to today’s fashion designers like Marit Ilison.
Visitors get an overview of the development of Estonian applied art and the work of artists active in this field from the beginning of the last century to today, from Adamson-Eric to Tanel Veenre.
