The doors of the WDC Helsinki 2012 team’s office have already been open since 1 September 2010. It has lodged next to the Senate Square, in one of Helsinki’s oldest stone buildings, originating from 1808. The house was renovated specifically for the needs of the central headquarters. Since the keyword in Helsinki in 2012 is design, this is also embodied by the organizational team’s office. The interior is the creation of designer Martela Oy, who took into account the colours and graphics characteristic of WDC Helsinki 2012’s visual identity, as well as the philosophy of accessible and everyday design. Finnish design can be found inside the house, of course, includingOcto lamps by Secta Design, Eero Arnio’s SwanXL light and Mikko Laakkonen’s Sparks coat racks. The office is open until 30 April 2013.
The exhibition takes place in Helsinki as the World Design Capital 2012, read more here.
