September 17, 2010 Estonian Design Showroom 07.08.2010

September 17, 2010 Estonian House with Estonian Design Showroom will be opened in Helsinki, Suvilahti.

Estonian Association of Designers (EAD) is partner in the Estonian House project. The project is a citizen’s initiative which resulted in the establishment of the Estonian House in Helsinki. The building will mainly serve as headquarters for the Tuglas Society, Estonian Institute and EAS Helsinki. It is located in Suvilahti, a district which should develop into the most active area with creative potential by 2012, the year of the World Design Capital Helsinki.

It is planned to furnish the Estonian House with Estonian products. Also, Estonian designers are offered an opportunity to display their products in the ESTONIAN DESIGN SHOWROOM. At the same time the House will become a place where to meet potential cooperation partners and organise small exhibitions and presentations. The House will be opened on 17 September 2010.
