Tallinn Design Map
You can find Tallinn Design Map also on Google Maps.
Tallinn Design Map leads the way to good Estonian design both for tourists and locals. Distinguishably designed public interiors and places that exhibit and sell Estonian design have been put on this map. The choice of places on the map is very diverse – on the map you'll find special places for dining, shopping, hotels, exhibitions and exciting urban environments.
„The Design Map values and emphasizes good Estonian design that can be found right here around us in places we don't often even notice it. For the locals, as well as visitors of Tallinn, the map gives an oppurtunity to discover familiar spots in a whole new context – Valli bar, Kuku club or good old cafe Maiasmokk for example," reveals design critic and one of the editors of the map Kai Lobjakas.
Tallinn Design Map is a city map where the spots related to design are marked with yellow numbers. On the backside of the map you'll find a short description about each object with the exact address and opening hours.
In order to make those places easy to find, there are distinctive yellow stickers on the windows of the places.
Each map is in two combined languages – map is available in estonian-english, russian-german, finnish-swedish and japanese-english. Everyone interested can find this free map from tourist information centres, Estonian Design Centre and from the places marked on the map.
The Design Map first reached the public in 2006 as part of the Estonian Academy of Arts Design Year project. Since 2008 the design map is published by the Estonian Design Centre.
