Cultural Tour

Gold & Silver


The Gold and Silver cultural tours take you and your friends on a journey through the world of Finnish modern architecture, public art, and furniture design around the center of Kuopio. These tours explore the design sites and stories behind them by the internationally renowned design and architecture firm Partanen & Lamusuo Oy, including the amusing and unexpected incidents that occurred during the creation process.

The meeting point is at Palad Showroom (Puijonkatu 16, next to the market square). Palad Showroom is an exhibition space for the Palad furniture collection design brand and an art gallery. The space itself is a work of art, bringing a touch of glamour to the center of Kuopio.

Prepare to enjoy a diverse cultural experience and the sparkle of precious metals!

We think that adaptability is more important than flexibility when it comes to creative collaboration.
The ability to tell the same story, even if the amount of pages in the book would change. With the experience of hundreds of both small and large projects, we can deduce that even though we are very proud of what we have accomplished, the merit for our best work goes to our clients. They have shared our point of view, that we can succeed only because we share the same vision and dream. We design spaces, buildings and environments that are comfortable to live and work in, pleasant to the eye and sustainable. We are a creative design and architecture office, we want to create an inclusive world all around us - Piece by Piece.
