Classic Danish interiors

One of the very successful concepts by Helsinki Design Week is the Design Diplomacy discussion series. Helsinki-based ambassadors residences open their doors to the public and registered participants gain the unique opportunity to explore the interior and architecture of the apartments. In addition, the events invite to a ludic Q&A card game session with a designer from each country meeting a corresponding Finnish design professional. This image is taken in the Danish residence in one of the many cosy meeting rooms fitted with classic Danish interiors.

Futuro art of living

In the sixties considered the home of the future. The material used for the Futuro house was mainly polyester plastic and as far it concerned the design minimalism ruled. The kitchen was kept simple with a grill only, and the living room supposed to work as well as the sleeping room.
