The pavilion, which officially opened its doors to welcome visitors on October 1, takes visitors on an interactive journey through the societal pillars upon which Finland’s happiness are based: continuous development and innovation, sustainable and environmentally-friendly solutions and extensive international cooperation. Under the central theme of Sharing Future Happiness, guests will be introduced to how Finland is pioneering sustainable change, developing digital innovations, and adopting a circular economy model within businesses and society to help alleviate the current strain on the earth’s carrying capacity.

Business Finland / press release:

Within the exhibition, there is something for every type of visitor to experience. Visitors can immerse themselves in the digital wonders of Finland and experience Finland’s calm nature in the Gorge. Guests are invited to interact with the KONE DX Class elevator and learn about successful people flow. Participating companies will also provide insights into how the future of sustainable energy production lies in the air we breathe utilising Power-to-X advances, which are demonstrated using a machine that converts air into the power required to brew coffee.

Visitors can also dive into the technology behind the Nokia and Luxturrim 5G Ecosystem smart pole and will be shown how the success of a smart city lies in a collaborative digital infrastructure. The Missing Links interactive art installation shows guests what they can do as global citizens to contribute to a greener world.”

The Finland pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai was officially inaugurated by Mika Lintilä, Minister of Economic Affairs, Finland; Severi Keinälä, Commissioner General of Finland at Expo 2020 Dubai and Marianne Nissilä, Finnish Ambassador to the UAE, Qatar and Bahrain.

Teemu Kurkela, Founder of JKMM Architects said of the signifance the design of the Snow Cape pavilion has on Finland’s design industry globally: “In designing the pavilion, we sought to bring a fragment of Finnish nature to the UAE and Dubai. The pavilion was inspired by the thin white layer of first snow that covers the Finnish landscape at the beginning of winter. In Finnish, it is called ’Lumi’, which means snow. The main entrance was inspired by a traditional Arabic tent. Two cultures meet in the architectural concept of the pavilion. Hopefully, this will be the best space in Expo 2020 Dubai for meeting face-to-face.”
