Slow down and think calmly.
Elena was born in Russia, she studied and worked in Finland and she’s currently living in Rome. Her creativity has been influenced by these three cultures, that enriched her way of working.
Elena Kihlman created a modern and original idea of home, where the atmosphere, harmony and the sense of well-being are important elements in addition to its functionality. In her products, she blends old elements with new and innovative aspects. Each design has grown out of a personal story inspired by her background, a cheering mood, or thanks to the memory of a particular landscape or touching feeling. Through this unique way of expression, she reevaluates the reality and underlines her individuality.
Functionality and artistic originality are melt together in every single detail, without any commercial intent. For this reason her work requires a large research of different materials and particular techniques, and first of all deep meditation.
