Helsinki offers an ideal place to get to know Finnish design and to buy top-class Finnish design products. Located in the centre of Helsinki, the Design District Helsinki is an area full of design and antique shops, fashion stores, museums, art galleries, restaurants and showrooms. Here you can find the most interesting names, classics, trend-setters and so much more.

The Design District Helsinki plays a large role in boosting Helsinki’s reputation as a city of design. It’s a cluster of creative businesses and it’s a neighbourhood association that offers residents and visitors shopping, dining, accommodation and experiences. The Design District comprises over 150 members.
