Mika Tolvanen

Mika Tolvanen was born in Lieksa (Finland) in 1975. He is part of the Finnish Rehti Design Group, a forum of young Finnish designers that have in common their passion for true and simple design.

After his graduation at the Royal College of Art with a Master of Design in the year 2001, Mika founded his own design office – Studio Mika Tolvanen – in Helsinki. Based in an ancient bakery, works for renowned companies such as Zanotta, Muuto or Offect are done in the Mika Tolvanen Studio, designing furniture, lamps and consumer’s goods.

”My Design are function oriented. I try to design functionally and visually durable objects. Products are for use, but that does not mean they can not be beautiful at the same time. I do not have a dogma or ism, but I believe good design comes from understanding materials and from a desire to improve functionality. An objects can be complex in its variety of functions, but doesn’t have to be complicated.”
