Driven by Curiosity
pått.a design was founded in 2014 when there was a need to brand products made by Alex Pått. Playing around with ideas for a name it was the weird sense of humour of Alex to use pått.a (Swedish påtta = potty). The first products were old information signs from the Helsinki subway that were made into coffee tables. Then came the idea to see if a toilet paper dispenser could be made out of an old Polaroid camera. Since then products have been made either as unique one-offs or a small series. As a part of LUMIDESIGN there is much experience in design and lighting fixtures.
The idea to salvage and redo objects into functional pieces is a way to promote unique and sustainable decorating.
