Design by Wesley Walters & Salla Luhtasela, also known as Studio Kaksikko. They are indeed a hybrid design constellation, where Nordic and American and Asian inspiration and traditions come together to give rise to new products and furniture. The duo met at the Aalto University in Helsinki. Before that, Salla studied to be a confectioner, and Wesley studied East Asian languages and worked as a Japanese interpreter on film sets. It was here, surrounded by architecture and set designs, that Wesley’s fascination with design was lit.
After teaming up at the university in Helsinki they established a joint studio in Finland, creating objects and furniture in a minimalist expression that is both new and old. New because of their mixed international background and eye for modern details, and old because of their fascination with and interest in traditions, techniques and old crafts, where they derive hands-on experience from 1:1 mock-ups that gives them a broad, eye-opening and concrete grasp of tactility, materials and functionality.
