Aarikka and Ravintola Teatteri announce a collaboration to create a unique "Pop-in-Showroom"
The Finnish design and lifestyle brand Aarikka and Ravintola Teatteri, a renowned restaurant complex in Helsinki, have entered collaboration in the spirit of the Design Helsinki 2022 event.
"We are creating a different kind of "Pop-in-Showroom" within Ravintola Teatteri's premises. The Design Helsinki visitors can enjoy close encounters with our designs whilst enjoying their meals or drinks," tells Aarikka's CEO Riia Sandström.
Kaisa Männistö, Director of Restaurant Operations at Ravintola Teatteri, lifts the veil slightly at this stage.
"We are really excited about this collaboration with Aarikka, which is itself one of the most iconic design brands in Finland. Our joint "Pop-in-showroom" creates a unique and uplifting experience where design meets with urban life in the heart of Helsinki restaurant culture."
Both Aarikka and Ravintola Teatteri have colorful histories and have been an integral part of building the characteristics of our capital city.
"With this "Pop-in-showroom" we want to celebrate these two brands and their impact over the decades on our capital and its vibrant life," continues Sandström. "The showroom places design items to hands distance to all attending Design Helsinki and are experiencing our beautiful capital city."
The Aarikka - Ravintola Teatteri "Pop-in-Showroom" will be open on Wednesday, August 24 and Thursday, August 25 for Design Helsinki visitors, and for the larger public until Sunday August 28th.
Aarikka and Ravintola Teatteri "Pop-in-Showroom" will be staged in Ravintola Teatteri premises at Pohjoisesplanadi 2, Helsinki.
Aarikka's own Design Helsinki Showroom with a wider display of design items will be open in Pohjosesplanadi 27, Helsinki.
