Design Diplomacy discussions and exhibition at Erottaja 2

This year the Design Diplomacy discussions will take place in 13 ambassador residences all around Helsinki. One design professional from each country meets a Finnish designer over the renewed Design Diplomacy card game. The Design Diplomacy cards have new colours, and the players will face new questions.

In addition to the residence discussions, now for the first time we can see the works of the participating designers at the Design Diplomacy exhibition. The exhibition will take place on the third floor of the main venue of Helsinki Design Week at Erottaja 2. It will present the answers of the designers participating in the Design Diplomacy card game to questions such as: What makes a perfect object? Or what is the best compliment to receive for one’s design work? The exhibition also presents the love for materials and the designers’ favourite projects over the years.

Participants include Icelandic product designer Valdis Steinarsdóttir, architect and urban planner Evelina Ozola from Latvia as well as product designer Jonas Edvard from Denmark. The participating embassies are from Great Britain, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Estonia, Latvia and Slovakia. 

Pre-registration for the discussions will start in August.
