KOTI pop-up hotel installation by Linda Bergroth, Paris – France

January 26th, 2017 by retail design blog

On the occasion of Finland’s 100 years of independence, the building of the Finnish Institute of Culture in Paris has been transformed into a hotel. Designed by Linda Bergroth, KOTI — meaning “home” in Finnish — celebrates the shared experience of a summer-cottage sleepover in Finland. The living pop-up installation is comprised of six cottages available to book on Airbnb for 100 days from january till may 2017.

With luxury of simplicity in mind, the project takes into consideration the meaning of home and the value of sharing new experiences. Fully equipped with a hand-picked selection of emerging Finnish designers, KOTI has been specially created to immerse its up to 12 guests in Nordic culture.

As Finnish people do in their own homes, guests are expected to remove their shoes upon entering. The experience tends to be quite intimate with the other guests because the cottages are not soundproof. This means all noise can be heard around the space and inside the cabins. In the morning, a Finnish breakfast is served along a wooden communal table, complete with coffee and traditional specialties such as rye bread, salted butter and dry berries.
