Are you wondering what to do in Helsinki today? Come and discover Iittala & Arabia Design Center's tours, workshops and exhibitions. You can also enjoy a cup of coffee or stop by for a snack.
The newest addition to Helsinki’s dynamic art and design scene – where you can take a deep dive into two of Finland’s best-known design and lifestyle brands, Iittala and Arabia.
More than a window into the history, present and future of these legendary brands, the centre invites guests to interact with working artists and explore their own creativity through exhibitions, workshops, guided tours, design talks and events.
The centre offers daily guided tours and special inspirational tours.
The guided tour is an excellent way to get the most out of your visit to the centre. The first stop is the fully renovated Design Museum Arabia, where you can explore the museum’s outstanding collection of Finnish ceramics and glassware. Next you get a glimpse into the future of design at the centre’s Design Lab and visit the studio of a ceramics artist in the Art Department. The installations at Fiskars Pavilion and Showroom are also included in the tour.
