The book about the permanent exhibition of the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design is a survey of Estonian applied art and – for the first time – the development of design. These are areas that have at times been closely intertwined, in both the Estonian context and in a broader sense.
Applied art took shape as a professional cultural field in the 1920s and 1930s. It arose from the Estonian peasant culture and Baltic German handicrafts in connection with the rise of national consciousness and blazed a path for itself, achieving success both at home and abroad.

The publication presents the history of applied art in Estonia, focusing on the State School of Arts and Crafts which laid a solid foundation for the art; the Stalinist period, which decreed compulsory art techniques; the point at which art reached industry; the heyday of themes from nature; the expression of national sentiments; the latest trends. But the qualities of classic applied art also remain important: the broad scope and mastery of the application of various materials and techniques, and the ideas.

Estonian applied art began to be collected in an active, systematic manner in the mid-1950s and for a long time, the focus lay on unique handcrafted work. In 2000, a design collection began to be created in order to preserve a record of examples of Estonian product design. The museum collection was thus for the most part assembled in the late 20th century.

As in the case of any historical overview, much is based on what one or another exhibition seemed to be at the time that it is treated. The multifaceted nature of applied art and design is like a crossword puzzle with no single perfect solution. Time states its conditions and brings out a number of things that it later casts aside or does away with entirely. The patterns remain in flux.
