About




© Rasmus Mäkelä
Hannakaisa Pekkala belongs to the new generation of Finnish designers.

Her design reflects where she comes from, the differences between an urban lifestyle and the bare nature of Northern Ostrobothnia. She strives to combine these contrasts in her work; for example harsh looking form with sensitive details.

Her background in art has a big influence on her as a designer.  The artistic approach can be seen in her often very sculptural works. Her curiosity for the world has fed her imagination and lead her to a creative path. Having always used several visual ways to express herself, she keeps exploring materials and techniques to find new inspiring results.
