Habitare is the largest Interior and Furniture fair in Finland. The event has been around since 1970’s. It gives a comprehensive view on the Finnish and Nordic design at the moment.
All in all Habitare fair gave an impression of well thought through and curated stands. The exhibition spaces had a spacious feeling, which benefited the displays making individual furniture pieces stand out nicely. Compared to many major exhibitions that are dense and grounded, this was a nice change in scenery.
Nordic design has become more expressive during the last couple of years – moving away from minimalism to using more colours, expressive forms and textures.
You won’t necessarily find the latest trends applied here, instead design has always a timeless quality and a retro feel.
