As I’ve just been to Helsinki to see what design week had in store, I felt it would be mean not to share my favourites from the Habitare exhibition…
It also comes in a lovely grey shade and has extra storage in the back.
KIEKKO – chalk board wall clock by Muoto
Far more elegant than the write-on Alessi clock that I saw recently, you can write whatever you like on this one – Breakfast, Second breakfast, Elevenses…
Nikari KVL1 chair
The level of craftsmanship from this company was superb and I couldn’t resist running my hands over everything.
Klaffi-hylly shelves by Elsa
The ultimate in space-saving shelving, although I suspect it would make you really anal about what you put on display.
And if you’re considering applying to study design you could do a lot worse than apply to Aalto University School of Art & Design – I didn’t get any photos but there was some really interesting stuff being exhibited on their stand.
