Habbo part of Helsinki Design Museum’s ‘Home – a Space and a State of Mind’ exhibition
Helsinki Design Museum’s main autumn exhibition ‘Home – a Space and a State of Mind’ opens today October 12th and we’re happy to tell you that Habbo Hotel is a part of the exhibition!
As described on the Design Museum site, “The Home – A Space and State of Mind is a multifaceted exhibition and the high point of Design Museum autumn season during World Design Capital Helsinki 2012. It addresses the relationship of modern-day people with the home from different perspectives, both conceptually and with concrete examples, and the various manifestations and meanings that this familiar environment can have. The exhibition also considers the evolution of the home in retrospect, from the present day back to the 19th century.”
The Finnish Habbo users got a chance to participate in the exhibition by creating their own dream Habbo homes. We arranged a competition in habbo.fi and the users were asked to send pictures of their dream Habbo homes to us. A total of over 900 creative room design images were sent to us, so deciding on the top 100 winners was not an easy job. Now the winning designs are being displayed in the exhibition, along with other Habbo elements shown in the museum, including e.g. impressive Habbo furni wallpaper :)
