About the Designer

      Leah Kenttämaa-Squires is a furniture and industrial designer who recently completed an MFA in furniture design at the Rhode Island School of Design. She grew up in Indiana, but spent her childhood summers in Finland at the family cottage. Her multicultural upbringing inspires functional objects with a pure and understated aesthetic, where form and function elegantly coincide. Her latest works utilize visual and tactile elements to inspire curiosity and stimulate a sense of awareness in an object.
