Designers from the University of Art and Design in Helsinki, Finland, showed their perception of a hotel at the Milan Design Week 2007. This interesting exhibition named helsinki hotel is exploring contemporary living, hotel environment and Finnish culture through space, objects and events. Besides being an exhibition it also serves as a social meeting place. As the designers have transformed their views into items. The results is an unusual family of charismatic, pleasurable and thought-provoking objects. ‘They stole the ideas of hotel maids and lost tourists, transforming into objects the atmosphere of the city.’
