Helsinki Design Week: Design Diplomacy with Fabio Novembre



Helsinki Design Week: Design Diplomacy with Fabio Novembre

New event by Helsinki Design Week 

A series of evening discussions enters ambassadors’ homely residencies that only few of us have been allowed to see. Each night, one design professional from the hosting country meets a Finnish designer in a new card game. Playful, intelligent 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 residencies 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?

Look for more information on the residencies and speakers:

The Residence of the Italian Embassy

Built in 1918, the residence of the Italian Embassy in Eira was originally offered to house the potential King of Finland, Friedrich Karl. He declined, however, and Finland became a republic.

Architect Fabio Novembre visits us from Italy to discuss with one of the architects of Löyly, Ville Hara. Italian architect Fabio Novembre has his own studio since 1994 and has been working with leading Italian Design brands. His work has been published all over the world for its visionary approach. Finnish architect Ville Hara founded together with Anu Puustinen their office Avanto Architects Ltd in 2004. The latest work of the office is the public sauna Löyly in Helsinki. Besides his office work Hara teaches building design at Aalto University.

The event is part of the Helsinki Design Week Design Diplomacy evening discussions series, that open the doors to Helsinki-based ambassadors’ residencies. See the participating embassies and their schedules here.
