The theme areas of Habitare are Habi Kids area dedicated to children, Habitare Light presenting lighting trends, Habitare Start-up for upcoming design companies, Habitare Choice area that highlights responsibility and sustainability, and Habitare Handmade that focuses on Finnish artisanship.
Habi Kids is a children’s area produced by Habitare. The area invites kids and families to play and have a good time together – you can also relax and take a break at the cafe located in Habi Kids. This year Habi Kids invites visitors to try drawing and crafting in the forest – the Habitare children’s area will be a colourful mini world created by the illustrator Matti Pikkujämsä. Pikkujämsä’s goal is to create a picture book-like colour experience and a mini-world in the area, and to provide a place for people to do things by hand and forget about their tablets and devices for a while.Read more
