Kristiina Lassus' Knots of Tradition
07/02/2019 - At Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair 2019, Kristiina Lassus shows three of her designs: AKANA, OZZ and KOY. Understated Nordic color palettes and ethnic geometries are inspired by the meditative qualities of Finnish nature and Lassus’ travels to distant lands. KOY by Kristiina Lassus

The ancient tradition of hand knotting rests at the heart of Lassus’ timeless designs. Hand-spun and hand dyed Tibetan wools and Chinese silks are painstakingly hand-knotted by Tibetan craftspeople in Nepal. Production is grounded in ethics and ecology, seeking to maintain the traditions and heritage of the weavers.

The collection has been recognized with a Red Dot Product Design Award and a Green Good Award. The Italian-based Finnish interior architect and product designer personally oversees the development and production of each piece.

Produced with handspun Tibetan wool and highlighted with bamboo silk and natural linen in pattern, Akana comes in 5 standard colors: white, light beige, camel, licorice and dark grey. It was inspired by stone carvings and it adapts easily to various interior styles. AKANA by Kristiina Lassus
