A a temporary forest-themed eatery created by a group of Finnish designers and food enthusiasts aims to be a melting pot of ideas for the London Design Festival.

Opening today as part of the London Design Festival, Hel Yes! is a temporary forest-themed eatery set up in the middle of a warehouse at the Londonewcastle Depot.

The group behind the project explain:

Can furniture be made from trees thinned out from the forest?

Can a new dinner set be created from donated plates?

Can a restaurant gather ingredients straight from the forest?

Can something new come out of foraging the old?

HEL YES! is a temporary restaurant and exhibition imagined and realised by a creative team of Finnish designers and food visionaries; led by Antto Melasniemi together with Mia Wallenius and Klaus Haapaniemi.
