Slanted Magazine #29 — Helsinki

Published by Slanted Publishers

Although Finland is a small country, measured by its population of 5.5 million inhabitants and a population density of 18 inhabitants per square kilometre (the lowest in Europe), it has so many superlatives: There are more saunas than cars, most heavy metal bands per capita, each Finnish noun can have more than 200 different forms, Finns are the world’s most eager readers of books and newspapers and world leaders in the use of libraries … the list could go on forever.

When the Slanted team left for Helsinki in late summer 2016 to take a look at the design scene there, they discovered a rich creative culture with people who seem to have a great awareness of design in their blood.

Slanted met many designers, from legends like Eric Bruun to the young and wild, and famous personalities of the contemporary design scene like Jesse Auersalo, Bond Agency, Double Happiness, GRMMXI, Helsinki Type Studio, Kokoro & Moi, Kuudes, Linda Linko, Martin Martonen, N2, Tino Nyman, Prakt Design Agency, Schick Toikka, Tsto and Werklig. Their great works can be seen in the Slanted Magazine, their opinions and views in the additional video interviews can be seen for free online on our video portal.
