Klaus K – an active member in the Finnish cultural community – is launching a co-creation project called The Klaus K Living Room Project, in which everyone is invited to take part in sharing ideas for the upcoming renovation of the hotel lobby.
The outcome of the renovation will be a new living room for downtown Helsinki, at the heart of the design district: a world-class lounge, a destination space where people meet, work, eat, drink and socialize.
The development of ideas is open for all on Facebook to join in, follow and vote on. Anyone can participate in the ideation by submitting something about aroma, lighting, games, chairs, whether scribbled on a napkin or printed on a 3D architectural blueprint. The Co-Creation project will take place from 1–31.8.2012. A jury will pick one winner, who will get to be a designer for a day working with Marc Skvorc, the general manager of Klaus K, and the interior design agency Stylt Trampoli of Gothenburg, which are in charge of the renovation project. The project is a part of the official programme of Helsinki Design Week, and its results, along with the winning submission, will be presented at a Helsinki Design Week party.
