This new event by Helsinki Design Week takes you into diplomatic circles!
A series of evening discussions enters ambassadors’ homely residencies that only few of us have been allowed to see. Each night, one design professional from the hosting country meets a Finnish designer in a new card game. Playful, intelligent questions challenge both the speakers and the audience.
In addition to discussions that last for about half an hour, you will learn interesting details about unique residencies and their architecture over a glass of wine. How many ambassadors have lived in the apartment? How does the place reflect its history and use?
