Is the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport the new must-visit Scandinavian design destination? Earlier today we posted on the Cafe Alvar A., an airport shop offering a selection of Finnish products (it's the only source for Harri Koskinen's birch bark Giftaway Bag). We also admire the airport's recently redesigned Fly Inn Restaurant, with interiors by dSign Vertti Kivi & Co. For more information, go to Fly Inn Restaurant.

Above: The rigorously controlled palette is limited to black, white, gray, birch—with touches of red and green.
