About us

Hello there! We are a designer couple Susanna & Tobias and we have our design studio and workshop in an old farm called Koivisto, located in a small town Karkkila, Southern Finland. The name of the farm is coming from the Finnish word „koivu”, which means birch. For us countryside is an optimal working area for creative work. Surrounding nature gives a never ending source for inspiration and peace for work.
Koivisto Studio Farm
Susanna has learned goldsmithing in Lahti, Finland and Tobias has done his carpenter education in Stuttgart, Germany. Our path crossed as we were studying design. Susanna did her student exchange in Germany in the same university, where Tobias was studying. In the year 2017 we got married and our company Koivisto Studio was founded.

Susanna has graduated from Savonia UAS Academy of Design. For her good design has always a strong story behind it. Her designs aim for harmony and clearness. Susanna is specialized for jewellery. She has a good eye for forms and compositions.

Tobias has graduated from Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd. For him good design has a maximum impact with minimal elements. Tobias is specialized for product design and furniture. He is mastering wood as a material.
