Founded in 1994, the Ornamo Foundation’s purpose is to support and promote the work of the members of the Finnish Association of Designers Ornamo in the fields of environmental  design, industrial design, fashion, textile and furniture design, interior architecture, craft art and textile art in Finland, bringing widespread recognition to accomplishments in these fields.  

The Ornamo Foundation possesses several significant design-sector funds and legacy funds, the income from which the Foundation uses to grant work subsidies, stipends and special prizes to designers and artists on an annual basis.  The Foundation accepts donations and legacies in order to fulfil this purpose.
