The Finnish Institute of Culture in Paris has redesigned its entire building into a hotel in celebration of the country's 100 years of independence. Now known as KOTI or "home" in Finnish, the building was designed to re-create the vibrant and relaxing vacation of having a summer cabin vacation in Finland -- except those in Paris can enjoy it from the comforts of the city.

Finnish Interior Architect Linda Bergroth led the design team for the KOTI project that promises to give Parisian adventurers "a sleepover in Finland" but they would wake up in Paris. According to Curbed, recognizable Finnish brands including Mattila & Merz, Lapuan Kankurit, Innolux and Kaksik dominate the furniture, slippers and even coffee pots used for the cultural project.

Bergroth said that when she directed the art and decor behind the Finnish appeal of the cabin houses in the institute, she had Finnish designers, brands and manufacturers in mind that already "fit the role." In her interview with Design Boom, she owns two summer cabins, which she took inspiration from. She added that the Finnish Institute of Culture KOTI Project is not a hotel but rather a "social experience" where Parisians can have "a taste of Finland in the heart of Paris."

In the official KOTI project website, photographs of the six cabin interiors showcase the simplicity of Scandinavian architecture that feels like a "cabin spa." Simple clothes and towel hangers surround beds, which are fitted with authentic Finnish linen. Overall, the cabin has a cabin, "summer side" appeal with its brightness and flat colors.

KOTI is part of the Mobile Home 2017 joint Project between the Finnish Cultural Institute of Paris, Benelux Countries and London. The Mobile Home project intends to explore the definition of "home" in different countries and cultures. Curbed has mentioned that Koti is to remain in the Finnish Cultural Institute for 100 days and move to Helsinki for another exhibit.

Tourists may book the KOTI through Airbnb.
