Design Diplomacy opens doors to the public of Embassy residences that only a few of us have been allowed to see. One design professional from each country meets a Finnish designer in a Design Diplomacy card game. Playful 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 residences 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?
Design Diplomacy is an event concept launched by Helsinki Design Week in 2016. In addition to Helsinki, Design Diplomacy discussions have been organized in Reykjavik, Tokyo, Madrid, Berlin and Oslo.
