When interior architect Joanna Laajisto set out to remodel a former bank in Helsinki into a Milanese-inspired bar called Jackie, she started with music. âI was given a soundtrack of sixties and seventies Italian lounge music and seventies French cosmic disco by the owner, Antii EerikÃ¤inen, to understand the ambiance he wanted in the space,â says Laajisto. âBest brief I have ever received.â
The result is a mix of velvet, leather, walnut, and exotic marble, which adds up to a piece of 1970s Italy in modern Helsinki. Hereâs a look.
Jackie is located at Iso Roobertinkatu 21 in Helsinki, Finland.
