I was part of this great "Torikoju" project. We opened restaurant for one day in the harbor area in Helsinki. It was part of Finnish Restaurant day that was held now for the 5th time. We make a modern version from the Finnish market cafeterias, called Torikoju. We designed and also make all the things in the restaurant; dishes, coffee makers, furniture's, tent, fabrics and also food. We get help from chef Hilja Nikkinen, graphic designer Jenni Viitanen, designers Nathalie Lähdenmäki and Martin Relander. All these great photos is taken by talented Venla Helenius.
