Wonderwater develops projects around the world aimed at raising awareness of global water issues and design for a sustainable future. The Wonderwater programme for World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 includes water-related events, an exhibition and workshops that will illuminate the significance of waterʼs role in the everyday lives of Finns and people around the world. The first Wonderwater Café took place during Beijing Design Week in the autumn of 2011. “We wanted to bring globally significant content to the Helsinki World Design Capital 2012. We chose the theme of one of the most critical issues – clean water
and its sustainability,” states Kari Korkman.
Wonderwaterʼs next projects include Wonderwater on the Baltic Sea, an exhibition where 16 Nordic designers present their vision for the future of the Baltic Sea at the Old Customs House (Katajanokanlaituri 5. 9 August – 16 September 2012) and Wonderwater Café London during the London Design Festival (Leilaʼs Shop. 15-23 September 2012). The international programme for 2013 will be announced in the autumn.
