Companies actively involved in Helsinki World Design Capital 2012

Helsinki WDC 2012 programme includes 250 projects and over 100 exhibitions.

In August Fortum is opening its Keilaniemi office and the Suomenoja power station to the public. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore Fortum’s art collection and enjoy the view from the top of the famous office tower.

Helsinki World Design Capital 2012 programme has been primarily assembled through an open call for projects. The number of participants is extraordinarily broad: from design professionals to preschoolers, officials to NGOs, and companies to students. Half of the programme consists of projects in workplaces, schools and residential areas with the goal of developing the city through design. The purpose is to inspire everyone to participate in improving the environment and demonstrating the possibilities of design in the promotion of welfare and competitiveness.
