Laura Itkonen is a designer, artist and material enthusiast living and working in Helsinki, Finland. She works widely in the field of design and art as well as in various spatial and visual design projects. The main focus of her work is on visually detailed, tactile architectural ceramics and on collectible, sculptural design. For Laura, the most interesting place to work is in the intersection of art and design where she can focus and investigate materials and their possibilities. She graduated from the Aalto University School of Art, Design and Architecture in 2010 and runs my own studio.

Her creations are the result of a combination of art and design; handmade sculptural elements on which the material often reflects it’s characteristic nature, the utmost details made most likely by 3D printer and carefully considered shapes and forms. The unifying factor of her works are contrasts created by the details.
