Founded in 2005, Helsinki Design Week’s focus lies on multi-disciplinary take on design and bringing it closer to people. HDW believes that design should be open for interaction, opinions and touch. Currently in the process of expanding both in terms of geography and time, HDW works closely with City of Helsinki, Nordic Fashion Association and other European cities and design organisations.
