Museum offers tour of Baltic Sea design

Roundabout Baltic - an exhibition on the design of Baltic Sea countries - is on show at the Museum of Decorative Arts and Design starting Wednesday. 

"We always want design to be not just pretty things - which is a consumer product - but something more too," art historian Inese Baranovska told LTV.

"What I like about this exhibition is that the function of a thing is not what's most important, but rather that there's a viewpoint of the artist and the curator," she said.

Pieces from Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Sweden are featured in the exhibition, however curator Agnieszka Jacobson-Cielecka said that what country the artists are from is not of importance--it's rather the way they think.

Roundabout Baltic is open from January 25 to February 26.
