Perho mirror, optiwhite, 2017
Think touch of the wings of birds or sensitivity of flying butterfly. The fragility of these two creatures have inspired Katriina to compose these two part mirrors. The hinges between the mirror panels allow the smaller panel to be moved. It gives possibility to investigate and reflect the surroundings. You are not captured in one view only. Perho mirror comes in two sizes and several colours.

Alku&Aina candleholders, 2017
Alku & Aina candle holders are made from Carelian Soapstone and Finnish Curly birch. Both these materials occur naturally where Katriina’s roots are, in Carelia, Eastern Finland. The round Alku (meaning “beginning”) is the base and the beginning of the tale. It reflects how and where the story begins. The taller one, Aina (meaning “always”) reminds that wherever you are, your roots follow and support you and can be the rock to lean on. Always let the flame shine bright!

Lyyli box series, 2015
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 grow. 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.

Oma pendant, 2014
The Oma lamp has been designed for young adults, families, grandmothers and career women. The lamp is lit to create a moment and atmosphere just for oneself, to create a pause in the middle of a busy day. Use Oma to light a moment of your own, in your favorite arm chair, with your favorite book. The form of the lamp may even distantly remind the viewer of a giraffe or a gazelle. The materials themselves have inspired the designer to create this composition of forms.
Oma sconce, 2014
The Oma sconce (oma is Finnish for ”own”) consists of a wrought-iron arm and a glass cover that has been mouth blown into a mold. The lamp prototype was produced by handicraft techniques and its structure is simple, yet clever. It may also be manufactured in industrial serial production. This slender utility article combines hard and sturdy iron with delicate and gently formed glass.

The wooden shelves are made by Puuartisti Oy in Joensuu. The finishing is made with black or natural matt wax. The shelf is attached to the wall with metal support.
