ID Helsinki Designer’s View

Last week we visited ID Helsinki in Telakka Event Center . ID Helsinki is a great interior design event for professionals. We discovered new innovations, met furniture retailers, material providers and, of course, our colleagues.

Classic Designs

Isku had a large and cheerful stand at the ID Helsinki. There we discovered the funky chair ”Tuoli 50”, which has by now became one of the Isku classics. This model is especially popular for home interior design. Later on, we saw the same chair at Habitare, though in different colors. Moreover, Tuoli 50 was combined with a new table ”Sarja”. The table is only a prototype so far, yet  a promising one. The designer of the table is Henri Halla-aho.
Kinnarp’s Deli chair is also a classic model, that won a Reddot Award in 2014. This chair comes with multiple leg options: metal, wood, rollers – up to you!

New Innovations

For our office interior design projects, Modeo is one of our favourite partners. That is why we were delighted to see their new innovative furniture solutions for offices and public spaces. One of them is a remote working station with a storage system. The desk height  is adjustable and even works with a Bluetooth. Also Up in the Air coffee table is worth mentioning since it’s not just a table but also a tiny aquarium..! Up in the Air is designed by a Spanish company Viccarbe and sold in Finland by Modeo.

Forms and Materials

Additionally, we want to mention a couple of shapes and surfaces that inspired us. With Innofusor’s artistic acoustic solutions we got familiar already a year back at Habitare. In ID Helsinki they had a colorful Pala installation from the Blocks Collection.
Finally, ID Helsinki once again proved that 3-dimensional surfaces are very trendy at the moment. They create a different visual and tactile experience, like, for instance, a collection of the wall panels, by Soften.
