You have probably seen these photos already but I just have to post them, because I'm totally fascinated by this! Dutch designer Lucas Maassen has has employed his three sons who are responsible for the paint job of the designed furniture. The sons work only 3 hours a week and get paid one euro for every piece of furniture they paint. Good work boys!

I recently found some necessary items for the house in very beautiful packages: Fire blanket from Hong Kong 15,90 e, olive oil from S-Market 5,90 e. My favourite coffee Saula still comes all the way from Spain, but maybe soon someone will sell it here too.

The great surroundings together with the latest work of young designers as well as works from alumni provide a super great experience. I recommend making a trip to the Port Warehouse.

I went to see the white Lego towers made by Icelandic-Danish architect group Krads. The towers are smaller than I expected but nevertheless impressive. If you have time, make a trip to Cable factory to see them. The towers made me wonder where to get only white Lego blocks? I was told that at least Lego-shop in Copenhagen sells all colours separately.
Co-create with Lego at Cable Factory, Helsinki 12.-16.9.2012
