She was born on Aland, a small group of islands in archipelago between Sweden and Finland. Her Swedish heritage is also apparent in her pragmatic and self-sufficient approach to design. Lotta takes the basic craft skills she learned as a child, such as potato printmaking and simple sewing, and stretches them into sophisticated tools. Her look is sleek and urban and her products are created for a busy city life. Her awareness, substance and instinctual sense of style are perfectly suited for contemporary lifestyles. She describes her designs like little plants working their way through cracks in the sidewalk. Things of simple beauty that bring relief to the urban landscape. Lotta’s work is about her life, and life is her inspiration. Her genius lies in exploring the beauty of everyday things. Lotta‘s aesthetic is deeply rooted in the Scandinavian landscape.
Her beautiful designs have since gone global,
