ABOUT

STUDIO Maiju Uski is a design company based in Helsinki Finland. The founder Maiju Uski works widely in the range of furniture, product and spatial design. Simplicity steers her work weather the scale is architectural planning or products for use on the table. She finds it intriguing to discover the points of contact in these areas and how one area of design influences another.

Her goal is to find the best way of using and combining different
materials in everyday products and furnishings. Using this as a starting
point, she strives to create beautiful, usable and sustainable designs.
