Helsinki Design Week

2018 Full Programme

The largest design event in the Nordics will host more than 200 events targeted at design fans and professionals in Helsinki from 6 to 16 September 2018. This year’s theme TRUST is addressed throughout the programme from impressive installations to design process descriptions presented at various events, lectures and discussions. Organized for the 14th time, the Helsinki Design Week festival is to revive the city with more than 200 events from 6 to 16 September 2018.
The complete programme of the festival has now been published. The theme of Helsinki Design Week in 2018, TRUST, has inspired many of the events organized during the festival. Workshops, exhibitions and discussions help perceive how trust is experienced in the different phases of the design process and how it eventually transfers between a service or product and their users. How does trust change over time as a city develops? We’ll also discuss how less ownership and more of sharing economy are to impact the structures of the society in the future. The main venue this year is the Helsinki City Hall that is going through a renovation. Helsinki Design Week takes over the lobby, filling it with discussion based activity. 
During the event, we’ll launch the Nordic Match concept by Nordic Culture Point and Måndag to bring together Nordic creative forces. Trust is also addressed in relation to our future ways of working – what if our colleagues in the future are robots? Can we trust artificial intelligence to understand and take into account the wishes and needs of the humankind as well as to actively create better operational models for the future? The feeling of trust is essentially connected to physical space, too, the impact of which can be evaluated from, for example, an educational angle. At the same time, trust has to do with feeling secure and comfortable. Together with the Embassy of Denmark, Helsinki Design Week and Design Museum organize a panel discussion on how hygge and design go together on 7 September. What is hygge in urban environment and can it make the quality of life better or us happier? The phenomenon is discussed by Director of Danish Design Museum Anne-Louise Sommer, a BoConcept designer, and other hygge and pantsdrunk specialists.
The Edible Stories workshop to be held at Teurastamo on 16 September provides an interesting angle to trust, exploring our personal relation to food and its significance to each of us. During the workshop, we’ll discuss on a general cultural level what kind of stories, beliefs and values relate to food and how they relate to, for example, sustainability. The objective is to challenge the ideas about quality, health and environmental impact of food that we often take for granted. However, essentially the trust theme is about human relations. 
How do our different backgrounds and values impact the ways we approach design and each other? Consensus and the creative power that springs from it can be felt at the events of the festival. The HDW HOP city installations have impressed the festival-goers for several years now, and this year they are once again built on the most central streets of Helsinki to explore trust in our urban environment. With whom do we share the city space? How can we trust strangers in our daily lives? Are we ready to face a stranger and share a moment with them? Sculptor Man Yau Is to build an altar dedicated to her most trusted and closest people amidst the buzz of Stockmann’s department store. It is called Nexus 10 and consists of ten different elements. City Cradle in its turn invites city people to trust a large wooden cradle and let it lull them.
The installation is created by architects Emmi Keskisarja and Janne Teräsvirta and master cabinetmakers Antrei Hartikainen, Heikki Paso and Tommi Alatalo. On the stage at the Esplanade, we’ll see a joint installation by Isa Kukkapuro-Enbom and Henrik Enbom’s Trash Design group and American artist Howard Smith (born 1928) called ”Rubbish Philosophy”. The trust between the blind artist and the designers turns into a unique multi-sensory work that utilizes recycled material and Smith’s works from the past 50 years. The new Helsinki Design Awards brings together the most skilled designers in Finland and the companies that honor their design with awards. The most important design event of the year will take place 12 September at Clarion Hotel Helsinki, and the awards are given in five different categories: Product of the Year, Internationalization, Young Talent, Jury’s Choice and Lifetime. This year’s jury consists of curator and producer Hanna Harris, information designer and data journalist Juuso Koponen, Master of Arts and industrial designer Petteri Kolinen, director of strategic initiatives at the City of Helsinki Sanna-Mari Jäntti, and awarded designer Elina Aalto.
