January–May 2017 at Institut finlandais
Be our guest at KOTI and escape the hectic pace of modern life. Savour the luxury of simplicity, the importance of home and the value of sharing unforgettable new experiences.
Sleep in your very own cottage and indulge yourself with tranquility and communal hospitality right in the heart of Paris.
Conceived and created by designer Linda Bergroth, KOTI (Finnish for “home”) transforms the café and project space of the Finnish Institute to bring the magic of the cabin experience to Paris’s Rive Gauche.
Each evening, up to 12 guests can book from a selection of six spruce timber aitta. Each day, the installation is open for the public to visit.
KOTI also plays host to a series of inspiring events throughout the spring.
From concerts and talks to film screenings and pop-up restaurants, KOTI is set to be one of the most exciting event destinations in Paris.
KOTI is part of Mobile Home 2017 – a joint project of the Finnish cultural institutes of Paris, Benelux countries, Berlin and London. The project explores and interprets the different meanings of home in 2017 through architecture, art, science and society.
Mobile Home 2017 will culminate in a joint showcase of all five projects in Helsinki at the end of the summer, with KOTI taking over the White Hall building in the city’s historic centre, Tori Quarters.
Mobile Home 2017 is part of the programme for the centenary of Finland’s independence in 2017, and it is supported by the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture and Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
