We are glad to see more and more conversation about copying arising
here in Finland. Lately, a Finnish magazine Avotakka published a great
piece concerning the issue. One of the oldest retailers of ours, Finnish
Design Shop, also added their part to the conversation about the matter
in their Design Stories (sorry currently available only in Finnish).
The latest statement to this important matter came from Hotel Helka.
Helka offers accommodation in a design filled interior in the heart of
Helsinki. Authentic design is a great importance for this hotel,
Octo pendants welcome the international visitors in the reception area. The team at Helka is constantly getting comments about their harmonic and inspiring
interiors and they feel it's their duty to invest in genuine design
products. In their latest blog with the title "Helka against design
piracy" they challenge every Finnish company to say "no" to design
piracy. With their own example, they want to invite other Finnish
companies to join the unified front against copying.
We would like to say a big thank you for Team
Helka for standing side by side with us for the genuine design! Warms
our heart to know we are not alone in this battle. With excitement we watch and see how
great this movement becomes. Maybe it will also cross the Finnish borders!
