Samuli Naamanka | Furniture
Samuli Naamanka (b. 1969) is a Finnish interior architect and furniture designer whose designs combine old woodcrafting traditions with modern, technical innovations. Naamanka graduated as a Master of Arts from Helsinki’s Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture in 2000, and continued his studies in Denmark's Design School. Besides product and interior design, Naamanka specializes in environmental design and experimenting with new materials and techniques: his master’s thesis led to a patent invention for a Graphic Concrete patterning technology, and in 2010 he won the EcoDesign lighting award with his Biodegradable Roll lamp, which was made of polylactic acid from starch sugar. In 2017 Naamanka founded his own design brand – Naamanka's collections include modern classics of Finnish design, such as the internationally awarded Clash chairs.
