Helsinki World Design Capital 2012 didn’t last just for the year 2012. Many of the projects part of the design year are still running – among them Antto Melasniemi’s restaurant Kellohalli in the old abattoir area in Helsinki.
Above the main entrance stands a clock that tells that you have arrived to the right place at the right time. One Saturday I went there a bit after five, when the restaurant had just opened its doors. The place was still quiet empty, but nevertheless the big hall felt welcoming and cosy. The food was simple and good – just the way I like it!
