Lotta Lampa (b. 1981) designer and artist, based in Kalix, Norrbotten, Sweden. Educated at Beckmans Design College in Stockholm and International Design Academy by Luxury Living Group, Forli, Italy.

Lotta Lampa's aesthetics are challenging and refer to both postmodernism and Swedish subculture ("raggarkultur", related to American vintage cars of the 50's and 60's) and are balanced with the calm nature of Norrbotten in the north of Sweden. Lampa's design process consists of simple lines, humor, inspiration from nature and everyday life. The objects are sketched quickly and large, preferably directly in the material. Manufacturing is then done by hand in close collaboration with her father and brother working with vintage cars in Kalix. A sustainable craft, where origin, cooperation and community are important and highly valued.
In addition to metal, she also works with materials like ice, enamel and textile. She has, among other things, created three pieces of art on ICEHOTEL, Jukkasjärvi (2014-2016).
Lampa's works has been shown in well-known Swedish interior design magazines such as, for example, Residence, Form, Artist and Plaza Deco. Lampa is also mentioned in the latest edition of the book "Moderna Antikviteter" by Jane Fredlund.
