appealing finnish design

Katriina’s inner calling, strong drive, and guidance make her creations come alive. She is fascinated by complex yet sophisticated technical details, daring combinations of materials, fiddling with fingers and finding harmonious mix of color tones and appealing shape compositions.

Vieno collection


Vieno collection


The starting point of the Vieno Glass Collection is a blank which in its full size is that of a Vieno Bottle. By cutting different parts of the blank, five different products can be produced.  Using such a method minimises wastage. If there is a mistake in some part of the Vieno-blank frit, the faultless portion of the blank can still be used for other products in the Vieno Collection. 

Katriina has previously combined delicate and shiny glass as well as matte wooden materials in her products. The different materials in her products accentuate each other. The collaboration with Master Carpenter Antrei Hartikainen in producing the Vieno Bottle brings forward the essence of two soulful natural materials. The jointly-designed cork of the Vieno-bottle is strong, fragile, delicate and beautiful all at the same time.

Lyyli box series


To storage nicely, within arm's reach.

Jewels, sugar, pills, pastils, clips, sweets, bath pearls and other small treasures
to storage nicely, within arm's reach. Lyyli boxes are sweethearts with humorous character.

Each Lyyli has travelled through the hands of four artisans. The wood originates from trees logged in Joensuu, Finland, the land of a thousand woods. It is created into a lid by wood-turning in the hands of an experienced professional, in the same region where the trees g row. The lid is made specifically to fit a unique glass cup made by a glass blower. The product is crowned with a glass knob, handmade and polished by glass designers. The combination of matt wood and shiny glass create a nuanced play of light, creating a compelling atmosphere.
