Look up to see some displays at Finland’s Habitare show
March 23, 2015,
HELSINKI, Finland — Visitors to Habitare, Finland’s furniture and design fair, will see sofas hanging from the ceiling during the September market.
Kaisa Berry, left, and Timo Berry created the design for Habitare, which will run Sept. 9-13 in Helsinki.
The theme of Habitare, a furniture and design fair in Finland, will be Breaking Free and will include furniture suspended from the ceiling. The designers called this display a “surreal fantasy, blue skies, clouds and a nice spoonful of Mary Poppins.”
Kaisa Berry and Timo Berry, from the Both design agency, are designing the Ahead arena at the fair around the Breaking Free concept using “architecture, spatial design and visual identity,” according to officials.
“The aim is to approach the often over-serious design scene by using art, stage design and a bit of kitsch,” she said. “We also offer adults an opportunity to play a little. There may well be other airborne surprises in store.”
Habitare will be held at Messukeskus, Expo and Convention Centre Helsinki, from Sept. 9 - 13. Habitare is open to professionals on Sept. 9 and to the public Sept.10- 13. The fair is online at www.habitare.fi.
