1header-logo00 hyvää Suomesta tuo suomalaiset pienyritykset ja niiden tuotteet ja palvelut mukaan juhlavuoden tarjontaan. Kampanjassa haetaan sataa Suomi 100 -tuotetta tai palvelua juhlistamaan satavuotiasta itsenäistä Suomea.

Kaikki ohjelman hakuehdot täyttäneet 202 ehdokasta on esitelty verkossa osoitteessa 100hyvaasuomesta.fi.

Äänestää voi vain kerran. Mikä on mielestäsi Suomi Finland 100 -tunnuksen arvoinen?

Today at the backyards of Urban Mill at 17:00: Join us for the annual ME310 Paper Bike Race!

The Paper Bike rally is a challenge given every year in the beginning of the ME310 – Global Design Innovation course taught at Aalto Design Factory

PaperbikeRace2015Teams of 4-5 students are given two weeks to build a ”bike” (meaning vehicle) made almost entirely out of paper products and compete in a given challenge.

This year, the challenge is an actual race where paper vehicles will go toe to toe around a track with varying obstacles, with the goal of completing the race in the last amount of time.

Students will compete in a ”F1” setting, first having a ”timing” contest determining their starting position in the actual race.

They will then complete two laps of the course, where they will switch the rider and the pusher after one lap has been completed.

See you there to see some awesome designs and cheer the teams on!

Service design competition organized by Aaltoes attracted young talents to Urban Mill

On 23rd of April, Urban Mill welcomed 30 innovative and young talents in a rapid prototyping workshop and competition organized by Aalto Entrepreneurship Society Aaltoes and sponsored by Fjord.


Participant of this workshop-competition were international and multidisciplinary people who wanted to spend a day, learning how to get real with sketches and ideas and building them in a short time.

Fjord as a service design agency walked participants through the process, from Discovery to Describe and Design. Participants worked on the real service design case of Aurinkomatkat and did their very best to redesign their service in a short time.

At the end of the day, the stakeholder got surprised by the quality of works achieved in a short time and evaluated all the works and selected the best one.
