Puuartisti / Woodartist
Puuartisti (Woodartist) is a Finnish woodworking business with a focus on unique projects ranging from individual pieces of furniture to complete interior design installations, wooden buildings and structures. We are not a factory with assembly lines, but instead we are a bunch of ambitious cabinetmakers and fine woodworkers who design, manufacture and finish everything according to the customers’ individual needs and desires.
We are on a quest of pushing the limits of woodworking, because we believe that wood can be used to almost anything – it’s only a question of creativity and talent. In all our projects we use pure solid wood, which we also combine with other materials such as glass, metal and stone.
At our workshop in Kontiolahti, Eastern Finland, we have space and equipment to carry out large-scale projects and we can do installations around the world. Recently we have also been preparing the launch of our own furniture collection.
The core idea in our collections is to use wood materials that carry a special meaning – the growing location and history of which we know and want to pass on to the customer in the form of the furniture. Then we will make small, limited editions of furniture from the specific material.
We also make personal storywood items by turning customers’ own wood materials into family treasures.. .
