Futudesign’s striking power lies in our combo of interior architects, designers and architects. We can professionally design buildings, interiors, pop-ups – anything from a door handle to city plans. Futudesign was founded in 2012, but the story behind us is way older: years before Facebook and Twitter, we and some guys from school created an underground online forum for Helsinki-based young designers and architects. The forum was anonymous and uncontrolled, filled with anarchy towards “the establishment” of the scene. That website was Futudesign.

Since establishing our company we have designed award-winning restaurants, a new art hotel in Helsinki, taken part in Uusi Kaupunki (New City) -architecture collective and performed in several TV series on architecture. We embrace new technology and use inherently 3D-printing, laser cutting, programming and other intriguing methods in our projects.
