Right after the opening party of the Ex Tempore Pop Up Shop at Kluuvi on Saturday evening, I continued to Paloni to prepare for the next day – I packed and inventoried all items for the Designtori joulu event in Tampere, finished after midnight and left home early the next morning to head to the next destination. Seems like sometimes (and lately a bit too often) my working days get over 12 hours long, but once again Tampere made it all worthwhile. There’s just the kind of energy at these Tampere events that is hard to describe. Maybe it’s because of the energy of the organizers (the Design on Tampere organization) or maybe it’s because there’s not too much of such events there yet. Whatever the reason, Tampere seems to like us, and we love it in return.
