Passing through Helsinki International Airport last May, I was struck by the furnishings I found while waiting for my flight. The benches are clearly different from the standard metal and polyester airport chairs and the minimal look is eye pleasing.
The use of wood is attractive, warm and certainly welcoming.
These simple, modern benches are also ideal for stretching out (when no one is around).
Maximizing space by adding a seating area here is brilliant while covering up functional but unsightly fixtures underneath.
The Spacehub (office space) rents for €5 per half hour and may be reserved in advance. You can get a lot of work done in a quiet space while waiting for your flight.
Another feature of the Helsinki airport is the area dedicated to charging gadgets. They thoughtfully added restrooms nearby so you can easily freshen up before going to your assigned gate.
