Helsinki Design Week and Tallink Silja are organizing a Design Cruise to Stockholm during Stockholm Design Week.
During the cruise we will hear interesting talks, in which designers Reeta Ek, Klaus Aalto and Annaleena Hämäläinen will share their thoughts about the design process and their sources of inspiration. The programme will be moderated by Saimi Hoyer.
The designers will look at the design world from slightly different angles: Young Designer of the Year 2017 Reeta Ek does textile design for different companies; Klaus Aalto designs furniture together with his wife Elina Aalto and works as an exhibition designer. Annaleena Hämäläinen is the creative director of furniture manufacturer Hakola, and she boldly updated the family company a few years ago.
In addition to the programme on the boat, a day at the Stockholm design fair or a design tour in the city is included in the Design Cruise.
