Filosa Oy

Our Filosophy

Filosa was established to break the traditional way of thinking about what public spaces should look like. The name Filosa contains a Finnish word for joy or being happy. We think that public spaces can be equipped with furniture pieces that bring joy and make people feel happy. How public spaces function can be considered in many different ways. We want to show you our way of thinking about spaces, through movement, dynamic functions and the feeling of comfort.

Filosa consists of a group of people with lengthy experience of creating designs and atmosphere in public spaces. Our aim is to reach a situation where Filosa is regarded as a pioneer in new approaches to creating public spaces.

Schools, universities, libraries and hospitals are the environments we are targeting. There’s no doubt that Filosa products could also be part of many other environments. Our furniture is perfectly suited for places where joy and functionality is called for.

That is our philosophy. We dare you to try it.

Danish Designer of the Year in 2018 and creator of the FILOSA System. 

“My professional passion is very simple: I love finding and shaping good ideas! I use my background as an architect to extract the essence of a requirement. To see potential in the context of space, in architecture and in people, without whom none of it would make much sense. For me, great inspiration is found simply by living life! Seeing the way humans, things, shapes, nature, structures and elements interact. Knowledge gathered from years of experience with a wide range of very different professional partners gives me valuable insight and cross-references to enhance my creativity. I always get the same great pleasure from finding the right solution. Finding the balance.”
