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 Outi Taskinen, Iina Hämäläinen, Siiri Murtola, Philippe Gelard and Taru Paavilainen. 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. palad® is environmental friendly, long-lasting and timeless. – Once designed is made for lifetime.
