Interior architect Timo Saarnio (born 1944) started his own interior design studio in 1982. It was also the beginning of his career as furniture designer and he started to participate in various design competitions. Since 1992 Saarnio has been collaborating with well-known furniture companies internationally as a freelance furniture designer. Considering the functionality of furniture in various space and production process, simplicity is essential factor for his furniture design.
