Hello Helsinki

The Helsinki Design Week, happening from 9 to 18 September 2011, considers ways of embedding design into life.

Open Helsinki – Embedding Design in Life is the theme of the Helsinki Design Week, taking place in the Finnish capital from 9 t0 18 September 2011.

The event will form part of Helsinki’s 2012 World Design Capital title and offer a meeting point for designers and design-minded people.

Helsinki Design Week 2011 will also take place in a new venue, the Katajanokka Old Customs House, which has been closed to the public for more than 40 years.

A variety of exhibitions, installations, a music festival and pop-up shop is just some of the things to look forward to during the Helsinki Design Week.

First organised in 2005, the Helsinki Design Week is a city-wide event that incorporates furniture design, architecture and fashion.
