Event cancelled // DDH Art Walk with Björk Hijoort & Verneri Välimaa // Sat 5 September


Sorry to inform you that the art walk is cancelled. We recommend that you’ll take the tour on your own instead. Please see the listed shops to visit!

 

While walking along Fredrikinkatu, enjoy Artist Björk Hijoort’s and her partner Verneri Välimaa’s project Väriportaali. Väriportaali is a series of 14 window paintings created by the multi-talented creative force Björk Hijoort. The incentive of the exhibition is to shine light on local businesses and enrich the community together through art and collective endeavour. Each art piece is a unique universe that is reflective of the store’s product philosophy and theme. This has resulted in a flourishing and diverse ecosystem of color, form and composition – united by the hand of the artist and the heart of the city.

 

The most popular autumn design sale, the Design Market, will open Helsinki Design Week on 3–5 September 2020. During the event, Design District Helsinki organizes three guided walks around the district. You will be taken to distinguished design shops offering sample sales and good bargains and get to meet designers. All of the vendors are committed to environmentally sound design and products.

We’ll meet at Lönnrotinkatu 39 on Sat 5 September at 11.30, free admission! Notice that you’re warmly welcome to visit the listed shops on your own, as well.

Prior to the art walk, Design District Helsinki recommends a visit to Everyday Design showroom at Kaapelitehdas, Tallberginkatu 1 B, 4th floor. Everyday Design wants to solve everyday life problems and encourage people towards a more ecological lifestyle with their recycling products. Opening hours: Thu-Fri 10-18 Sat 10-18.
