Palad was born when artist Jaana Partanen and architect Heikki Lamusuo wanted to create furniture not yet on the market. The furniture should be homey, loveable, transformable and even playful. They should be versatile and matching but still simple.
Jaana and Heikki have a long experience in combining design and architecture. The aim of designing Palad-artifacts has been bringing joy and harmony to surroundings.
Palad-team has consisted of many excellent designers, such as Iiro Heikkilä, Outi Taskinen, Iina Hämäläinen, Siiri Murtola, Philippe Gelard, Taru Paavilainen and Henry Väistö. As a team they have wanted to find functional and open-minded solutions for the many needs of public spaces.
All Palad-products are produced locally and fairly in Finland. Upholstered furniture is manufactured in Northern Savonia by Sepon Kaluste, and hard furniture by M-Erikoiskaluste. It is important for us to support local entrepreneurship and, at the same time, domestic design and work. This also ensures high quality and durable furniture for each of our customers. Palad is an environmentally friendly, long-lasting and timeless purchase.
