Location

Helsinki Airport

A new Nordic vision has landed to Finnair’s Non-Schengen Lounges at Helsinki-Vantaa airport. The main goal was to create the ultimate Nordic lounge destination. Expanding the existing lounge was also necessary to accommodate the swiftly growing number of customers who pass through the lounge daily. Another target was to offer Finnair customers considerably elevated lounge experiences that cater to their various needs.

The lounge comprises the Finnair Platinum Wing, Finnair Lumo, and Finnair Business Lounge. Finnair’s distinguished brand image along with quintessentially Nordic elements and values helped create visual stories for both lounges. The spatial experiences are rooted in our nature. With curved surfaces and a subtle material palette, it portrays a moment of quiet and calmness, feelings so closely associated with Nordic culture and comfort.

Architectural Digest selected Helsinki Airport’s Finnair Non-Schengen lounge as one of the world’s TOP 7 chicest airport lounges for traveling in style.

“With a signature Nordic design, Finnair’s lounge is a masterclass in paired-back minimalist design. Every choice of furniture reflects the different needs and moods of the passengers using the space, carefully zoned to create areas of work, rest, and play”.

Architectural Digest

“The flagship non-Schengen Business and Platinum Wing lounges that have been warmly received by our travelling guests is our latest project in collaboration with KOKO3. KOKO3 understood our aesthetic very well and many of the practicalities of the constrained airport environment to deliver a world class lounge with a fresh and elevated look and feel for Finnair.”
