Finnish design in the focus of Vienna Design Week 2019

All the world’s a stage, as Shakespeare already put it. This September, the design world will turn its attention to the Vienna Design Week. Designers from all around the world will gather in Vienna to present their creative work. This year’s guest country is going to be Finland. Laura Hirvi, director of the Finnish Institute in Germany, had a chat on this topic with Lilli Hollein, Director of Vienna Design Week.



Book corner

The Finnish Institute has in its premises an open book corner for working, studying and reading books in a cozy environment.

Studying and internship consultation

We organize informational events regarding studying and internship possibilities in Finland at study fairs and colleges. We offer current informational material and a possibility for personal counselling.


The institute's publication series discusses various topics regarding the Finnish society, academic research and culture.
