SLAATTO DESIGN – why we design
As peoples’ lives get more complex, people are asked to choose between an increasing number of directions. We believe that at heart, people want to focus on their life without getting distracted by complicated products, services and unnecessary information. We are not afraid of the obvious or even the banal because these qualities are timeless, they will stay appealing. Therefore, we work hard
to keep things simple, get rid of any information that does not help to understand the product and to find beautiful and obvious solutions to complex problems.
to push our industry and culture towards a sustainable future.
