Aleksi Puustinen is a multidisciplinary artist, designer, and maker from Helsinki, Finland. By exploring the boundaries between art and functional design, Puustinen creates sculptural, playful, yet functional pieces that reflect the surrounding world, traditional craftsmanship, art and design. In his works, he combines different techniques and materials into multidimensional and functional objects and art pieces, which seek to create a dialogue between the object and the user.
”As a maker, I want to create unique and meaningful products with a sustainable approach. In our world, I feel there is an abundance of stuff that is designed either unsustainable or inconsiderate. As a designer, I feel obligated to find new sustainable solutions and make a change. Using waste as a resource fascinates me. The concept of turning trash into something desirable and functional is what I aim for.”
