  • Sails flying high at Nokia

    There's no clue in the HQ as to what the significance of these overhead sails are, but Nokia did have a yacht that was successful in the Sydney to Hobart race back in 1999. This building was constructed in 1996 and 1997, and was due for a renovation in 2008 -- a plan that was spiked due to the global recession.  It still looks modern to me. 

  • Wired for sound

    I wasn't sure what to make of this seven-foot high arch phone display. A reference to the trend of phones including music players, a trend that predated and laid the foundations for Apple's first iPhone?

    It's located in a hall nearby the cafe. Apparently jazz bands occasionally play nearby for Nokia staff.

  • The flower room

    I don't think I've ever seen a resting spot for pots of flowers, but Nokia has one -- I guess if they need watering, it's probably logical to do it in one spot than lugging water back and forwards to reach them all.

    That's a mall kiosk they used to sell the Lumias in different parts of the world.

      How sad. The Asha alone would have brought in more than their entire Lumia effort to date.
