Mia Battilana (b. 1968) is a Finnish designer who is also the founder of Kotonadesign, a Finnish trademark established in 2004 – Kotona is a Finnish word that means “at home”. The most innovative product designed by Mia Battilana is the original notice board which is at the same time a magnetic board and a whiteboard.
Kotonadesign noteboards, available in different colours, shapes and sizes, are accompanied by a series of creative accessories. Mia Battilana’s noteboards have been shown in numerous exhibitions in many countries – including the exhibition “Nordic Design” in 2009 at the Total Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul, Korea – and in short time the designer has become widely well-known for her creations. As for the origins of Kotonadesign, it all started from a left-over case in a workshop of a carpenter Mia Battilana knew. She was allowed to take with her as much left-over wood pieces as she would be able to carry. And of course she was able to carry a large amount of left-over wood pieces and once home she just sat admiring them and wondering. Wooden material which was meant to be burned found its way to useful products on refrigerator doors and notice boards This is how Kotonadesign’s product concept was born. Kotonadesign realizes a series of original interior design articles that are perfect for decorating the house. Kotonadesign products go from coloured notice boards that are at the same time a magnetic board and a whiteboard to different kinds of magnets. All Kotonadesign products are made in Finland.View all products

”Finnish Design Shop is the first place I go to furnish and decorate my newly renovated house, thanks to their beautiful, high-quality products and their excellent customer service.”
”Both my purchases were excellent quality, priced at a very reasonable level and delivered in a matter of days despite me being the other side of the World. There is simply no way to describe that kind of a Company except amazingly good.”

”We purchased a Hay Snowden Kettle from the Finnish Design Shop - unfortunately there was a fault with the Kettle but this was professionally and quickly dealt with by the Olli on the After Sales team, so we can recommend them for their great customer service and after-sales experience.”
”Fast delivery. Ordered a hammock for my mothers birthday to be delivered at her adress. It’s in a somewhat rural area, but it was delivered at her door regardless. Great service.”
”I ordered a HAY side table that was on back order everywhere else. It was a few hundred crowns more at Finnish Design Shop, but shipped the next day and was delivered to my door two days later, which I think was worth the extra cost. It came well-packaged, protected and the item is in perfect condition. I’m happy and would shop here again.”
