HILE Design

Hilja Nikkanen and Teemu Karhunen make up the design duo of Hile Design, a Finnish brand that not only designs but also manufactures long lasting life enhancing products. Staying true to the Scandinavian methodology, they create quality products, with a clear language for form and function. Teemu was an artisan cabinetmaker before creating Hile Design, this is evident in the details of the Kapu and Sola products, where he combines both modern and old handcrafted methods in the production. Hilja, who is not only a designer but also a professional chef, brings positive trends from food and culture, as well as localness and traceability to Hile.
