Hannakaisa Pekkala belongs to the new generation of Finnish designers. She's the CEO of UU Market, a pro multitasker one could say. Alongside UU Market she also runs her own design studio and works on wide range of creative projects, varying from product and spatial design to sculptures and art. Hannakaisa feels that it’s all about building visual elements together, no matter the form of the work.
Her background in art has a big influence on her as a designer. The artistic approach can be seen in her often very sculptural works. Hannakaisa strives to combine interesting contrasts in her work; for example harsh looking form with sensitive details. Having always used several visual ways to express herself, she keeps exploring materials and techniques to find new inspiring results.
