Pengerkatu 7 – Työhuone (Massage & Beauty) is a soft, intimate, polymorphic and polyphonic, hyperconnected, hybrid, new kind of art-among-other-things space in the center of Helsinki, convened by artists and researchers Simo Kellokumpu and Vincent Roumagnac. Työhuone proposes contemporary art, artistic research, professional massage, and seasonal ikebana workshops.

The programmed events (free) and massage therapy reception/ikebana-workshops (paid) are facilitated regarding the current sanitary instructions.
