I founded my company Nounou Design in Helsinki in 2003, one year after finishing a Master's Degree. During my studies I had explored different ways of working with the glass material, also in different countries. My everlasting love for Australia, where I studied in 1998-2000, almost made me stay on the other side of the globe, but mind won the heart and I returned to Finland for further studies. The time 'down under' had planted many seeds yet to grow and bloom, and so I decided to go with the flow, and glass. Nounou Design is still, 10 years later, the same one-woman company it has always been, yet growing slowly and steadily in the tough field of art, craft and design. Since the early days the Nounou Design glass studio has relocated
to the Nuutajärvi Glass Village, where glass has been made
since 1793. The Nounou Design Shop & Showroom just started its 8th year in the midst of the Helsinki Design District.
Nounou Design is a brand name covering everything made in series, or even in other materials than glass. The company concentrates on producing small series of decorative glass designs by hand. We also specialize in tailored solutions for companies in need of individual gift options for clients and personnel.
