The main venue of Helsinki Design Week, Erottaja 2, provides a multitude of events during the festival. In addition to the main exhibitions, Room with a View and DesignPartners19, under the same Neo-Renaissance roof we’ll find the Helsinki Design Week festival info desk and ticket sales, a design store provided by Finnish Design Shop to honour sustainable choices, discussion panels and workshops.

Opened for the first time to the public, Erottaja 2 provides an opportunity to borrow books and magazines, enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of organic wine, browse the exhibitions, meet new people and participate in discussions to address the best possible Learning Climate. In this building we’ll also introduce the Helsinki Design Awards finalists, the new players of the Design Diplomacy card game as well as many artworks and installations, including an experimental space by Meiju Niskala, ceramics by Leena Kouhia, and works by Graphic Artist of the Year Lotta Nieminen.

Designers of the future have been invited to present at Erottaja 2. Multidisciplinary student teams will present their solutions to future spatial design and textile production challenges. 

Open from 11 am to 7 pm every day except Monday, 9 September.
