Art walk with Björk Hijoort and Verneri Välimaa

The autumn design sale, Design Market, will open Helsinki Design Week on the first weekend in September, when Design District Helsinki organizes three guided walks around the district.

The tour showcases distinguished design shops offering sample sales and good bargains - also designers are present.

Walk includes visits to the following design shops: Cilla's, Finarte, asuna, LIIKE and FRENN.

Artist Björk Hijoort and her partner Verneri Välimaa will present their project Väriportaali on Fredrikinkatu.

Väriportaali is a series of 14 window paintings created by the multi-talented creative force Björk Hijoort. The incentive of the exhibition is to shine light on local businesses and enrich the community together through art and collective endeavour.

Meeting point: Lönnrotinkatu 39
