KATRIINA NUUTINEN (b. 1983) is one of the leading Finnish designers of her generation, specializing in glass and ceramics. Since graduating from the School of Arts and Design at Aalto University in Helsinki in 2011 she has frequently worked with materials such as wood, metal, leather and textiles.
Nuutinen has won several international awards, among them the Talents a la Carte award by Maison&Objet fair 2016 and Interior Innovation Award 2015 Winner awarded to the Candeo bright light lamp produced by Finnish Innolux. In 2017 the Perho mirror was selected one of the twelve best products from Finland in 2017. More recently, she was awarded a one-year grant by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
Nuutinen’s inner calling, strong drive, and guidance make her creations come alive. Her inspiration comes from many things, such as everyday life, words of friends, different materials as well as interesting colour combinations. She is fascinated by complex yet sophisticated technical details, daring combinations of materials, fiddling with fingers and f inding harmonious mix of colour tones.
Essential to her working process is goal-driven toiling from detailed sketching and form shaping to relatively quick finalizing. Her main material glass has great qualities to reflect light and colour, to cause optical illusions. It is a challenge to a designer to work with glass. With glass material a certain sensibility is needed. Nuutinen has had the honour and pleasure to practice her vocation with skilled glassblowers.
