Studio 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 with a timeless expression.

 

Human intervention in nature and society is a theme that she often explores in detail, paired with the problematic of our over-consumption and environmental issues. 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 and by teaching product and furniture design at Istituto Europeo di Design‎ (IED) Barcelona. ​
