Anni Pitkäjärvi is originally from Jyväskylä, in central Finland. She has graduated as industrial designer in Joensuu University of applied sciences and is currently finishing a Master’s Degree in Furniture design at Aalto University. She has worked as freelance designer for many well-known Finnish and inter­national brands including Artek, Aarikka, Hakola, Okdesign and Woud. In fall 2015 she did an internship in design headquarters of IKEA in Älmhult, Sweden.

Anni’s signature style in design is clear and re­duced but never boring. In her design practice she wants to combine artistic vision and feasibility for mass-production. She wants to design insightful and emotionally touching objects and furniture without forgetting usability.

Hanna-Kaarina Heikkilä grew up in Kemi, a small town in the northern part of Finland. Having an ar­chitectural background she has also studied design at Aalto University. At the moment Heikkilä is working as a designer at IKEA of Sweden and therefore not currently taking part in running the studio. During her professional career she has done architecture across many different kinds of projects. She has worked in architecture offices such as OOPEAA and Sou Fujimoto. As a freelance designer she has collaborated with companies like Artek and Woud.

Hanna-Kaarina has lived and worked abroad in Copenhagen, Sweden and Tokyo. She is very interested in different cul­tures, materials and working methods. Working abroad with her projects is in high priority. She applies the know-how of different scales and various materials to her work and takes a unique multi-disciplinary approach to different design tasks. With her creations she aspires to generate unforgettable experiences and new sto­ries, phenomena and memories. An open-minded attitude, outstanding multi-tasking skills and passion to design incite the artist´s interest to explore new methods
