Aalto University will partner with food delivery service Wolt and Helsinki Design Week (HDW) for the first-ever “Design Delivered” programme, bringing student design work home to interested buyers.

With the 20 August opening of the Aalto University Shop in the new A Bloc shopping center at the Otaniemi campus, Aalto will offer a mix of branded goods, Aalto ARTS Books and student design work. Now some of that student work — which will include limited edition prints, ceramics, books and jewelry — can be delivered directly to your door by ultra hip food start-up Wolt as part of the yearly Helsinki Design Week festivities.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to launch our first-ever University store than together with our friends at Helsinki Design Week and Wolt. It is an innovative and playful idea, a great celebration of young Finnish design talent,” says David Lewis, Aalto University’s manager of Marketing and Brand.
 
Pop-up shop for student design

In addition to the delivery, the Aalto University Shop will offer a pop-up location in Helsinki on 10th September. Students and alumni interested in having their work included in the shop can read more about the project online.

Lewis adds, “Our university is overflowing with great work and passion. Helsinki is buzzing during Design Week and it is only fitting to showcase our up-and-coming designers this way.”

Helsinki Design Week, held from 6–16 September 2018, is the largest design festival in the Nordic countries. The multidisciplinary festival presents design from a number of fields as well as fashion, architecture and urban culture.

Founded by Aalto alumnus Miki Kuusi, Wolt is a ground-breaking food delivery service operating in over 20 cities and offering access to over 1400 restaurants.
