Hanna Anonen is a Helsinki-based designer with a background in carpentry. She holds a BA in industrial design from the Lahti Institute of Design and an MA in applied arts and design from Aalto University in Helsinki. In 2017 she participated in Finnish Design Shop’s FDS Award design competition with her innovative Cocktail chandelier, ultimately coming third. Later, the design was picked up by the Finnish furniture brand Hakola. In 2021, Design Forum Finland awarded Anonen with the Young Designer of the Year award.
Hanna Anonen’s designs are often characterised by playful, innovative forms and her uninhibited use of colours. She is perhaps best known for her industrial design work, but she is also a talented spatial designer, having created exhibitions and interiors for a variety of clients. In addition to Hakola, Anonen has collaborated with Made By Choice, Iittala and IVANA Helsinki, among others.
