World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 welcomes you!

Kicksledges are made for winter and snow of course, but in the World Design Capital they may as well function as chairs in the summertime, in a cafe. How inventive and fun.

A year ago in January 2011, Helsinki was packed with snow. Amazing amount of snow was beating records. One could almost swim in it, but for making snow angels it was almost too much.

Now WDC Helsinki is officially opened. Lighting designs in Senate Square looked beautiful. The Lutheran Cathedral was illuminated as a center piece with caramel colored lighting. The small amount of snow did not take down the atmosphere of the opening party.
