The exhibition will see more than 20 countries showcase their design, ideas and concepts as well as organise a number of different events. The exhibition’s underlying theme is day-to-day life – what is it like in the participating countries, and what kind of solutions to certain everyday situations have people come up with in the different countries? The free-of-charge exhibition at Suvilahti, Helsinki, will take place both indoors and outdoors. The site will house a container village, café, design shop and urban garden, and the participating countries will be offering visitors a varied programme ranging from lectures to parties. There will be things to do and experience for adults and children alike, and for everyone from design professionals to anyone with the slightest interest in design. The exhibition is built around a joint display in Kattilahalli, where the countries come together under different themes to, for example, share a table. In addition to the joint display, the countries will present their own designs in separate exhibitions, which will explore day-to-day themes and everyday design in more depth from a number of different angles. Visitors get to try out a North American children’s playground or have a go at the Irish game of hurling.
