Sustainable industrial design
I’m a designer driven by a deep commitment to sustainability. I create products that blend innovation with environmental responsibility, meeting the rising demand for eco-friendly solutions. In my niche of sustainable industrial design and consultancy, I focus on using environmentally friendly materials and optimizing the entire product lifecycle. My work prioritizes efficiency, resource optimization, and tangible positive impacts. I guide clients toward eco-conscious choices, staying updated on the latest sustainable practices to ensure my designs and services are at the forefront of the industry.
Each project I work on has been meticulously designed with a keen focus on materials and their lifecycle, striving to minimize waste, improve recyclability, and reduce the overall carbon footprint. From consumer goods to complex industrial components, these designs highlight my belief in ‘sustainable innovation’ – meeting our needs today without compromising the future.
Bedroom concept for Unikulma
Design brief to make a headboard and accessories from given materials.
This project was done as a team with my fellow Aalto MA classmate Roosa Harju.
In our Unikulma design project, we aimed to address the challenge of low headboard sales (20% of customers). Targeting both the existing and a younger customer base, the Viola product family offers customizable elements like headboards, nightstands, and lamps. Key features include a durable MDF headboard with HVL veneer, customizable sizes, eco-friendly materials like hemp for pillowcases, and Sulapacin Premium lamps for a warm ambiance. Viola reflects Unikulma’s values through thoughtful material selection and the flexibility to create unique combinations for diverse homes.
Steam bent discarded pine veneer
110 x 40 cm
“Juurakko” is a hanging light fixture crafted from steam-bent discarded pine veneer. This project embodies a commitment to sustainability, transforming reclaimed materials into an artful and elegant design. The intricate steam-bending process creates a unique, organic form, casting a warm and timeless glow. With “Juurakko,” I aim to showcase the beauty and potential of sustainable design, redefining discarded materials into a piece that blends aesthetics with environmental responsibility.
Design study for Simucube
Case: High end driving simulator wheel
This study was done as a team with my fellow Aalto design Bachelor classmates Roosa Harju and Mikaela Kipinoinen. Simucube partnered with Aalto University as our client giving us a brief to design a luxury steering wheel concept for simracing.
In the project I was in charge of the 3D-modelling and visualisation as well as participating in the group tasks like concepting.
Simucube wanted us to deliver a steering wheel for their driving simulator, that would combine the high end feel with the feel of performance.
The design was inspired by a classic steering wheel but was made to meet the modern standard of digital extreme sport.
Study on form giving, material studies and small series production.
