Ice Ice Helsinki.
Next Saturday team mottoWASABI + Sebastian Jansson will make it work at the Senate Square. We’ll be sculpting an ice lantern with 15 other design teams in a charity event called Frozen Lights which is a part of the World Design Capital 2012 program.
Frozen Lights will be a dramatic display of ice lanterns in Helsinki’s Senate Square to celebrate the Open Doors Weekend of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012.
To raise awareness of the important issue of the water footprint, the lanterns will visualise the amount of water used by people on a daily basis in Finland.
Alongside lanterns sculpted on site by renowned designers, everyone is invited to participate by creating their own ice lantern.
