About

Enkovaara designs products that explore how the man-made world interacts with the natural world." Through my work I try to understand the immaterial side of an object that come alive through our experiences and imagination. I explore how objects would behave, look or feel like with out the restrictions of cultural norms." 

Kirsi Enkovaara is a Finnish designer. She based her studio in South London after graduating from the Royal College of Art, Design Products in 2014. She has exhibited extensively thru Europe at the moment participating in the Helsinki Design Museum exhibition Enter and Encounter.
