Finnish concept restaurant Hel Yes! is creating a week-long dining installation for Stockholm Design Week that will showcase Finnish cuisine in a multi-sensory experience incorporating dining, dance, performance, mythology and a whale-bone orchestra.

From February 7th-11th, performance will be integrated into the experimental social experience, transforming the traditional dining ritual into high art. Restaurateur Antto Melasniemi, artist Klaus Haapaniemi and designer Mia Wallenius are working together with acclaimed choreographer Kenneth Kvarnström and the Helsinki Dance Company to incorporate interaction and movement into the cooking and serving of the food.

Unique Dining Experience Blends Performance With Cuisine

Along with more advanced choreography during the evenings, the artist Maria Duncker will showcase her ‘Bone Orchestra’ with its uncanny instruments crafted from whale bone. The menu offered by Hel Yes! has its roots in Karelian tradition, with vegetarian and vegan options available. This multi-sensory dining experience combining gastronomy, design and dance is sure to be very memorable for all of the guests.
