Helsinki Design Week is on now, and Dezeen asked local interior designer Joanna Laajisto for her list of favorite spots when a little time out from the event is necessary.

From the Helsinki Design Museum to the restaurant Atelje Finne and sleek Jackie bar, the list is full of local knowhow and impeccable style. “What makes Helsinki different from other Scandinavian cities is the surrounding nature that can be accessed by only few minutes walk or ferry ride from the city centre—it makes the city very special,” she tells Dezeen—where you can read the full list.
