Josh Krute

"I am a designer, a crafts-person, and an artist living in Helsinki, Finland. By approaching design processes using experimentation with traditional artisan-techniques, I aim to make furniture and objects that are simplistic and functional for everyday use, while highlighting the decisions of the ‘maker’ that makes them unique.”

"Cant take my eyes off you.."

We believe that the world needs new and fresh ideas by young thinkers and doers! By connecting young designers and manufacturers our mission is to help as many young designers as possible to start their career and step into the industry! Oh and btw, for us 'young' means a state of mind, not age! ;)
