A three week exhibition showcasing the 25 most interesting fashion designers, accessory designers, illustrators and photographers from Helsinki. Exhibition opening takes place 14.6. and lasts until the Fashion Week of Berlin ending on 8.7.2012.
The aim of the exhibition is to create a platform for Finnish designers, illustrators and photographers to show their work in one of the most fast growing art and design capitals of Europe and to create future collaboration possibilities in the field of cultural exchange between Helsinki and Berlin.
The exhibition also works as a taste of what is happening in Helsinki during this exiting year and hopefully will create curiosity for tourism. The target of this happening is not only the creation of links between designers and investors, but especially to bring the design closer to everyday people and everyday life, which is the core soul of Finnish design.
The timing of the exhibition is planned for the most interesting month of design in Berlin, grouping design and fashion into one event.
Welcome to visit our exhibition in the summer 2012 in the heart of Berlin!

Finnish Midsummer, Friday 22.6.2012 @ Direktorenhaus
The midsummer or the summer solstice is celebrated in Finland on a Saturday between 20th and 26th of June. Traditionally bonfires were lit to protect against evil spirits which were believed to roam freely when the sun was turning southwards again. Nowadays rituals include bonfires, cookouts, a sauna and spending time together. Heavy drinking is also associated with the Finnish midsummer.
We will celebrate the midsummer at the Direktorenhaus of Friday 22th of June in honor of this tradition with music, drinks, food and a Sauna. It is also a perfect way to recover from the Fête de la Musique of Berlin held the previous day.
CD6 Workshop, Thursday 28.6.2012 @ Direktorenhaus
CD6 (Conceptual Design in 6 hours) is a new conceptual design workshop that aims to bring artist and designers together for brainstorming and producing new work and kick-starting new projects. The CD6 workshop is based on the famous PD6 (Product Development in 6 hours).
The workshop is for experienced to novice designers and artists, and also participants who may not know anything about creation itself but know specific tools or crafts used by design.
The concept of this workshop is producing work in small groups on a given subject and with the time limit of 6 hours and collecting a feedback from the participants afterwards.
During the six hour workshop, every creative team will go through the process from an idea to a concept. The teams work intensively during the day and will receive tutoring from the facilitators. In the end of the day, each team presents their ideas and teams also get to evaluate each other.
The results of the workshop will be presented in Helsinki and Berlin in end of July.
