ANNE HIRVONEN  ︎  WORKS  |  ABOUT  |  CONTACT


Anne Hirvonen is a furniture designer from Finland. She finds her inspiration in everyday life from nature to urban surroundings. As a designer, she strives to constantly develop her skills and her way of thinking. Novel techniques, materials and shapes inspire her outlook on the mundane life and the wilderness in Finland, while her relentlessness and curiosity drive her forward.  Currently she is finishing her MA degree in Contemporary Design at Aalto University. During the past couple of years Anne has begun to explore glass which she sees as a versatile and fascinating material.
