My name is Samuli Kapanen, third-year Industrial Design student from Lahti.

In design, I am interested in simple and clear, also timeless design language.

Philosophizing has always been close to my heart and I think it is also reflected in my thoroughness in my design work. With my thorough work ethic, I can create meaningful design that benefits both the producer and the user of the product. My main values are usability and durability.

My interests and passion include architecture, nature, technology and photography.
