This year, our in-person attendees will meet at Paasitorni, a waterside art nouveau heritage building on the edge of the Kallio neighbourhood. Known for its bohemian vibe and lively street life and cultural scene, Kallio is a popular area among students, artists, and young professionals. The area boasts a wide variety of bars, cafes, restaurants, and small shops, offering everything from vintage goods to contemporary Finnish design. We hope this will be where a meaningful spark can be ignited for the entire Service Design Network community.
