We were kindly invited by the Ambassador of Finland and the Finnish Design Shop to the Nordic Design Event organised in collaboration with Flow Festival at the Finnish Residence in Kensington Palace Gardens.
The Finnish Design Shop stocks products by some of our favourite brands including Design House Stockholm, Ferm Living, Gubi, Hay, Jielde, Magis, Plumen and Tom Dixon. http://www.finnishdesignshop.com
Highlights of the evening were getting to know the UK representative from Finnish brand Muuto http://www.muuto.com whose chairs and coffee tables we’re planning to use in a top secret future project
and catching up with Mirka and Jo the designers behind &NEW http://www.andnew.co.ukwhose colourful, graphic tables we are super fans of and have used in our residential design projects in Camberwell, South London.
Lucky Mirka won the raffle prize of 2 tickets to the Flow Festival which takes place in Helsinki
12th – 14th August http://www.flowfestival.com
We’re very tempted to join her since some of our favourite bands are playing – New Order, Sia, The Kills, Chvrches and Massive Attack. We’d also like to pop to the forests of Finland to see if we can find the Moomins!
