Finnish Tech, Design and Art, a non-profit organization that promotes Finnish creativity in the US through artistic expression, will debut The House of Finland this month in New York City. An exclusive four-day pop-up shop and festival featuring a series of events will take place on November 10-13 and will showcase Finnish art, design, music and gastronomy at Broome Street Gallery on 345 Broome Street.
