Sanna Völker

ABOUT

Sanna Völker is a Swedish-born designer of objects and furniture based in Barcelona. ​

 

Her work can be described as a search for equilibrium between rawness and refinement, harmony and intrigue. Her designs often draw references to architecture and brutalism, manifested in furniture and objects of pure shapes.

 

Human intervention in nature and society is a theme that she often explores in detail. Intrigued by craft and how traditional materials or techniques can be transformed into a contemporary piece she collaborates with local craftspeople, both for her self-produced pieces and commissioned works. ​

 

Sanna combines her work as a designer with curatorial work - where she addresses current topics such as community, localism, gender equality and preservation of craft - and by teaching product and furniture design at Istituto Europeo di Design‎ (IED) and Elisava Barcelona. ​
