Arctic Design responsibility

We want to help the Arctic to succeed. The endangered Arctic Owl belongs to the sensitive ecosystem of the Arctic. This elegant migratory bird is the mascot for Arctic Design Week, the world’s northernmost design event, and depicts responsible Arctic design.

Experience-rich Rovaniemi

Lapland’s distinct seasons and its Arctic capital of Rovaniemi are full of unique experiences – perfectly designed for those experiencing the experience. Thanks to Ounasvaara, this international university town is also a centre for sports travel.

The Hometown of Santa Claus

Santa Claus greets visitors every day of the year in Rovaniemi. Santa’s Rovaniemi residence is located in the Santa Claus Village on the Arctic Circle. Each year, Santa Claus receives over half a million letters from all over the world, and he also replies to many.

Ounasvaara

Ounasvaara is a versatile centre for sports. A skiing centre, golf course, wellbeing centre, and a large nature trail network can be found close to the town centre. Rovaniemi has been awarded the title of European City of Sport 2020.

Arctic Circle 70 Years

The Arctic Circle and the Santa Claus Village form an internationally renowned destination that welcomes over half a million visitors each year. 2020 is the 70th Anniversary Year for the Arctic Circle in Rovaniemi.

Organisers

The main organisers of Arctic Design Week are the City of Rovaniemi, Business Rovaniemi and the Lapland University Consortium (Faculty of Art and Design of the University of Lapland, Lapland University of Applied Sciences) and partners including The Arctic Centre and Science Centre Pilke.

City of Rovaniemi

Rovaniemi is an Arctic capital full of life and a pioneer in the circular economy. Business Rovaniemi is responsible for the practical arrangements.

Lapland University Consortium

Lapland University Consortium (LUC) is a nationally and internationally leading player in Arctic research and expertise, and a pioneering and leading university of art and design.

Arctic Design Week

Kevään 2021 Arctic Design Week työstäminen on jo käynnissä. Miten muotoiluviikko muotoillaan matkailijoille? Siinä meitä auttaa Hanna yhteistyössä alueen matkailuammattilaisten kanssa:

"Olen Hanna Korpua ja opiskelen Lapin yliopistossa matkailututkimusta ja teollista muotoilua. Toimin kesän harjoittelijana Arctic Design Weekillä ja tehtävänäni on kehittää Arktista Vimmaa-kaupunkifestivaalia paremmin matkailijoita palvelevaksi. Jatkossa tavoitteena on, että Arktista Vimmaa-elämykset ovat paikallisten lisäksi myös matkailijoiden koettavissa. Erityisesti minua inspiroi se, kuinka Arctic Design Week toimii kohtaamispaikkana paikallisille ja matkailijoille ja uskon, että voimme näyttää tästä esimerkkiä muillekin kansainvälisille Design-viikoille, jotka ovat käynnistämässä tuotteistustaan matkailijoille."

The coming Arctic Design Week 2021 is under the active planning process - specially we would like to attractive for the tourists. Hanna with her servicedesign skills is helping us together with our touristbusinesses:

"My name is Hanna Korpua and I’m studying tourism research and industrial design in the University of Lapland. This summer I got the opportunity to work as an intern in Arctic Design Week and my task is to improve the Arctic Passion-city festival to also serve the needs of tourists better. In future the goal is that Arctic Passion experiences are available not only for locals but for tourists as well. What inspires me the most is that Arctic Design Week acts as a platform where tourists and locals can interact, and I believe this is something we will do exemplary among other international Design Weeks."
