Design Diplomacy opens doors to the public of Embassy residences that only a few of us have been allowed to see. One design professional from each country meets a Finnish designer in a Design Diplomacy card game. Playful questions challenge both the speakers and the audience.
Design Diplomacy is an event concept launched by Helsinki Design Week in 2016. In addition to Helsinki, Design Diplomacy discussions have been organized in Reykjavik, Tokyo, Madrid, Berlin and Oslo.
Design Diplomacy at the British Embassy residence brings together this year’s HIAP design residents: Laura Spring and Elina Laitinen.
