Minimalist forms, dealing with nature sensitively, using renewable materials, and an incomparably high sense of quality – it’s no surprise that Finnish design has long been world famous. After all, this simple, grounded, and natureoriented ideology has accompanied and enriched Finns’ lives for centuries, in their living spaces, at universities, in restaurants, and at workplaces – and as a result has also made a significant contribution to the country being one of the happiest in the world. As an atmospherically designed comfortzone for visitors, FINLAND LOUNGE will gather at the Festival Headquarters in the Althan Quartier a selection of carefully selected Finnish brands to provide a stylistically appropriate venue for relaxing, discussion, and meeting friends (or possibly even working a little). On view will be designs from Adea, Arkki by Lovi, Lepo Product, Nikari, Poiat Products, Secto Design, EVAVAARADESIGN, and Woodnotes. A warm invitation!
