Design Diplomacy

Where Helsinki
Accessible Yes

Helsinki Design Week always features an international programme, exemplified by HDW’s original concept, Design Diplomacy, that has been recreated in dozens of cities around the world.

Design Diplomacy series will produce unique, intimate conversations in embassy residencies around Helsinki. During the event a design professional from the hosting country is to meet a Finnish designer over a card game. Visitors will have an opportunity to experience carefully guarded interiors and unique conversations as in each situation the interlocutors meet for the first time.

Participating countries include Denmark, the Netherlands, Iceland, Belgium, Spain, Uruguay, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Estonia. The participating designers will be announced in August, when event registration also begins.
