Pihlgren ja Ritola arranged several design competitions during the 1950’s. Some were open to the public, but some were special calls for designs, directed to the most renowned artists and designers of that time. The most important competition was the one held in 1958. Designers who contributed were such names as Birger Kaipiainen, Rut Bryk, Erik Bruun, Jukka Pellinen, Lisa Johansson-Pape sekä Annikki and Ilmari Tapiovaara. Today, Designer Collection features several authentic designs of the 1958 competition, and some gorgeous designs from the 1960’s and 1970’s by our own, highly skilled designer Ritva Kronlund.
