The 100-day installation gives visitors an immersive experience of Finnish hospitality

What if you could have a sleepover in Finland and wake up in Paris? With Institut Finlandais and Airbnb‘s 100-day installation of a minimalist Finnish cabin named KOTI, you can.

Designed by Linda Bergroth, KOTI, which means “home” in Finnish, gives visitors an immersive experience of the essence and simplicity of Finland. The installation includes six spruce timber cabins that are designed to accommodate 12 people in both private and communal spaces. Guests are invited to check in at 6pm and are asked to adhere to the tradition of taking off their shoes upon entrance. Robes and slippers designed by Lapuan Kankurit are given to guests to make the cabins feel like home.
