At the fair
“Mindspaces” is this year’s theme of Habitare 2019, Finland’s largest furniture, design and decoration event. Because, as explain the designers of the theme, the trend expert Antti Rimminen (from Urban View) and the culture and fashion reporter Mia Dillemuth, “Metaphorically, the mind can be thought of as a house with different rooms”.
Alberto Alessi, president of the Italian design company Alessi, will be the international Friend of Habitare in 2019. He will be exploring Habitare, selecting the most interesting content and will give a keynote speech on the opening day 11 September 2019.
