Idols Design House is located in between Ivalo and Inari, by the southernmost bay of Lake Inari, called Ukonjärvi. 18 kilometers up North from Ivalo airport and about 40 kilometres from Saariselkä.
The exoticism of nature in the wilds fascinates people all over the world. For travelers arriving to admire the same, Design House IDOLI offers, as the area's only operator in the field, an adventure in beauty and culture based on Finnish top-level design and the natural wilderness.
Design House IDOLI is an exhibition and sales atelier made of square-timber logs and the natural stone of Lapland, complementing the modern HELMI glass kota (Lapp tepee) rest-stop. We're in the middle of a fascinating, serene wilderness area on the shores of Lake Ukonjärvi at the southernmost cove of the legendary Lake Inari.
We have gathered 11 top names in modern Finnish design for our exhibition: seven individuals and four well-known design brands. We provide reception for groups of 4 - 12 people on a special order basis. It is possible to purchase and order products on display.
