Eelis Aleksi

Eelis Aleksi is a designer from Kuopio, Finland, whose idea sparked the story of Lumoava. Many all-time favourites in our range, such as Pihla and Warrior, originate from Aleksi’s pen. In fact, he is one of Lumoava’s most productive designers. Aleksi often starts his design process by putting his pen on paper and letting things start taking shape freely. He says that this often results in highly decorative and elaborate shapes, which he then starts gradually reducing and simplifying.

"I am naturally very interested in aesthetics. There is a huge amount of form and beauty around us, so the environment and especially the home where I work the most is important to me. I follow a lot of online and magazine art, photography, graphic design, architecture, interior design, sculpture and product design. In addition to visuals, music and various emotional states are also enormously inspiring.

I don’t see my profession as a job, I live it or it lives in me. My profession is a way of life." - Eelis Aleksi
