Held annually in September, the multidisciplinary festival presents design from a number of fields as well as fashion, architecture and urban culture. The next Helsinki Design Week will be held on 9–19 September 2021.
Helsinki Design Week also produces its' own design media, Helsinki Design Weekly. The weekly online publication and a live radio show presents timely phenomena in the field of design and raises discussion on the future of the industry. Helsinki Design Weekly is published bilingually in both Finnish and English.
Helsinki Design Week also hosts Children's Design Week, a parallel programme aiming to add design and architecture literacy among young people in the Helsinki Metropolitan area.
