Finland is living up to its title as Word Design Capital and making an extra effort in the travel sector to brand itself as such to foreigners.
National airport authority Finavia has created a new exhibition area and design camp at Helsinki Airport where passengers can appreciate Finnish creativity and spend time relaxing before their flight.
The new area has been introduced as part of Finavia’s ‘Art Port’ concept at Helsinki, a long-running programme celebrating the city’s status as World Design Capital 2012. The airport design camp has been planned to fit in the airport environment, allowing them to enjoy Finnish art, design, expertise and creative thinking.
