Habi Kids


Habi Kids is an area dedicated to children, in which the entire family can take a breather! Habi Kids will feature workshops to be implemented in cooperation with design and architecture education professionals. The installations will be lined with companies’ stands, featuring interior design products and furniture specifically designed for children and children’s rooms. Habi Kids is a satellite event of the Helsinki Design Week Children’s weekend.


Habi Kids Design School



Habi Kids Design School invites everyone to come along and play, and to come up with new ideas for a learning theme park of the future. Children and families together will get a chance to test the methods of design learning and to step into the shoes of a designer!

Habi Kids is designed by children

The Habi Kids area and the programme are designed by the users of the area, school classes and families with children together with designers, in workshops held in the early spring 2017. The area was outlined and conceived based on the inspiration of the users’ hopes and dreams. Design workshops led by SuoMu – the Finnish Association of Design Education – worked on the elements of the area during the spring 2017.

SuoMu is a design learning organisation that promotes interest in and recognition of design and design education.
