On the way to Peru!

Hi guys, This is the first entry to our blog CITE Madera! Our team will travel in week and a half to Peru to meet the hard working people of CITE Madera. We will also visit lot of SME’s working with wood furniture, designers, stores and other places that help us to gain understanding how things work in Peru. Our aim is to introduce tools that help companies to use design as a essential part of their business.

Our project is also part of World Design Capital 2012. Last Saturday all the cities participating had a design day, also Lahti, my hometown. Out of all the workshops, exhibitions and events my favorite was “Walls” project in harbor that was done in collaboration with students and young designers from kindergarden. Even if we had -23 degrees people were participating and walking around the city. Thats the spirit!
