Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Story restaurant in Helsinki by Joanna Laajisto

I love how relaxed and inviting the new Story restaurant and café in Helsinki looks. Designed by Joanna Laajisto, with a great feel for colours and materials, and a mix of stricter designer furniture, bespoke shelving and benches, and some fun lighting that looks as if made from crayfish cages. The fresh herbs and open shelves full of newly baked bread and simple brown paper bags filled with flours hint of the rest of the building's function as a market hall. Don't let the relaxed vibes fool you into thinking that the food is equally simple though; the chef has a Michelin star from his other restaurant. This place is definitely on my list of places to visit on my next trip to the Finnish capital!

    It's rare to see double storey restaurants/cafes in Hong Kong. So nice to have a spacious place full of sunlight. Im so jealous :P
