The Helsinki Design week is the largest design festival in the Nordic countries and will be held between the 7th -17th .9.2017. It presents the new faces of design and promotes them internationally in collaboration with various partners. This year, Koskisen is proud to be one of them. We are acting as a material partner for the installation called “Enter” from the architects Inari Virkkala, Sofia de Vocht, Petri Herrala and the graphic designer Marja Tikka.  

“Enter” will be located next to the design museum, at the address Kasarmikatu 15, Kaartin maneesi, which is an old riding arena building. The installation consists of a series of consecutive gates and symbolises transition from one space, country or culture to another. It will function as a stage for discussion and various events.  

Koskisen is supplying two different products for the installation from our decorative products range:

- KoskiDecor White Melamine, printed, for the arches

- KoskiDecor Eco Transparent for the tables

The installation is free and open to everyone, every day!  

The opening will be held on Thursday, 7th of September from 6:00-8:00 PM. An opening parade organised by the We Jazz festival starts at Kaartin maneesi at 7:00 PM and passes through the installations to Keskuskatu in the city center, welcome!
