The Design District has made a name for itself as one of Helsinki’s most popular tourist destinations.
Design District Helsinki brings together creative people in the heart of Helsinki, just a 15-minute walk from the railway station. The area takes in 25 different streets and 200 different places worth a second look, from interior design shops and fashion boutiques to jewellers, from antique shops to galleries and museums, and from restaurants to hotels and design agencies.
Helsinki is a modern pocket-sized European city of culture that is known for its design and high technology. Helsinki’s attractive and unique character comes from its proximity to the sea, which offers an endless number of exciting opportunities in summer and winter alike.
Deep into Lapland, there is a place where top Finnish design can be seen right at the source of this inspiration: Design House Idoli is an extraordinary design studio and showcase. Its creator, Pekka Sillfors explains why.
