Julia Töyrylä

Julia Töyrylä is a designer, glassblower and soon to be interior architect who studied Industrial Design at Lahti Institute of Design. During her studies, her new-found fascination with glass led her to take a two-year glass-blowing course at Nuutajärvi Glass Village, Finland. She sees hands-on work as a key part of design and finds new ideas through playful experimentation. These ideas are often revelations about everyday life, which helps her create thoughtfully designed functional items.

These ideas are often revelations about everyday life, which helps her create thoughtfully designed functional items.

Töyrylä sees spatial design as a natural extension to her design and artisan skills, which is why she is currently studying to be an interior architect at Aalto University. Working with her hands helps Töyrylä maintain a personal relationship with her designs, creating a deeper relationship with items and spaces.

“The value of a space or a product comes from its background and story. It is these factors that make them cherished and used by generations.”
