Tikkurila showcasing its sustainable solutions at the World Expo 2017
The 2017 World Expo is held in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, between June 10 and September 10, 2017. The theme of the expo is "Future Energy" - promotion of sustainable energy and sustainable design.
In addition to more than 100 countries, also Finland is represented at the Astana Expo 2017 with its own pavilion, carrying the theme "Sharing Pure Energy". Finland will present the Finnish energy efficiency know-how and clean-tech expertise as well as digital solutions, education, health technologies and healthcare through known Finnish brands.
Tikkurila is one of the key partners of the Finnish pavilion, and promotes its sustainable solutions for energy efficiency and a more sustainable living. All the interior and exterior surfaces of the Finnish pavilion will be painted with Tikkurila's surface treatment solutions.
The Finnish pavilion consists of 5 buildings made of cross-laminated timber: Each of the buildings has its own interior decoration, atmosphere and story supporting the expo theme. The themes are dedicated to energy production, energy efficiency, clean water and education. The fifth building houses a café. The atmosphere of each building is built at the intersection of nature and the digital world.
The Tikkurila and ISKU Lounge at the pavilion is showcasing Tikkurila Design Floors and Tikkurila water-borne interior paints, such as Harmony and Taika.
