Story of Verso Design | Verso Store

About us

The three of us

"Our mother Kirsikka Savonen, my sister Tuttu Sillanpää ja me. We are responsible for the design of Verso Design products. Me and Tuttu grew up in the middle of our mom's furniture prototypes and played under her drawing table as kids. The holidays were spent with our grandparents, where the activities of our architect grandfather inspired us and left a lasting imprint. Early in life, we learnt the basic values of Scandinavian design, such as the use of natural materials, high-quality manufacturing, functionality, and design that stands the test of time. They are a natural starting point for us when we think of new products. Maybe that's why it's easy for us to do design work together."

- Tuuli Burman, CEO

How it all began...

"In December 1997, my mother Kirsikka and I had a plan for an innovative wood/textile carpet, Verso.

Before the carpet was put into production, we made several trips to Ostrobothnia, wandering from one weaving company to another looking for a company that could produce a completely new type of product. Eventually, the weaver of Annala was found, who bravely took up the challenge.

When the carpet was brought into production, the first product was immediately marketed to European design shops. My mother had a career as a furniture designer behind her and she knew that international design stores were interested in distinctive products like the Verso carpet. So internationality has been with us right from the start. Today, more than half of the company's sales go to exports. "

- Tuttu Sillanpää, creative director

Responsible production

It is essential for us to design products made from easily recyclable natural materials, respecting the environment. We want to fight against the disposable culture - our products are made to last from one generation to the next.

An important link in the whole is the manufacturing that we wanted to keep in the surrounding areas. All our products are manufactured either in Finland or in the neighboring areas of Sweden and the Baltic countries. We spend a lot of time looking for good manufacturers. We look at how they work to make sure we maintain good quality and delivery on time. It is important for us to be able to tell our customers under what conditions our products are manufactured.
