Studio Sanna Völker
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 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. Her work has been exhibited in Brussels, Barcelona, Milan, Cologne and Paris.
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) Barcelona.
