Aarikka will be attending Habitare at the Association for Finnish Work’s KOTI2017 stand
The Association for Finnish Work will be attending the Habitare 2017 trade fair in honour of Finland’s centenary at the department KOTI – Suomalaisen kodin mielenmaisema (HOME – The mindscape of a Finnish home). This autumn Aarikka will also be found at that very stand from 13-17 September 2017. The KOTI2017 stand is the handiwork of Pentagon Design, the design agency of the year. The space is divided into themed areas: Forest, Sea, Snowdrift, Meadow, Polar Night, and Market. Each area is inspired by Finnish nature. Aarikka is participating in the Meadow themed area. The KOTI2017 stand is constructed by companies which have been awarded the Design from Finland and/or the Key Flag Symbol. Habitare will be held at the Messukeskus Expo and Convention Centre in Helsinki, and the KOTI stand can be found in the AHEAD area next to the main corridor.
