Sebastian Jansson

Finnish industrial designer Sebastian Jansson’s nascent vision is both contemporary and international in its expression of form, material and presentation.

Through his extensive conceptual cognisance Sebastian and his team has developed projects of considerable diversity – ranging from one-off gallery pieces to highly industrial products, with both successful growth-stage companies and industrially significant brands.

Series of ventures have defined Sebastian Jansson as one of the bright sparks of Finland for a generation of young designers compelled to escape the shadow of Scandinavian modernism.

Jansson studied industrial design at Aalto University, Politecnico di Milano and ENSCI-Les Ateliers. Today Jansson is based in Helsinki, and works closely integrated with the industry, directing and developing design of everyday objects.
