I'm just back from two weeks working in Europe, darting from London to Turin to Milan to a fantastic week in Helsinki. There, I was participating in Helsinki Design Lab – which was one of the most inspiring events of my professional life – and generally absorbing more of what has become one of my favourite cities. More on all this to follow, including a brief, possibly temporary, return to shorter, more diary-like entries from those cities.

(The video above is a little offering to the majestic and awe-inspiring Finlandia Hall in Helsinki, designed by Alvar Aalto and completed in 1971.)
