Kauppi & Kauppi (Johan Kauppi, 1975 / Nina Kauppi, 1978) is a designer duo with roots in the very north and south of Sweden. Johan and Nina have both earned their MFA degree at the Academy of Design & Crafts at The University of Gothenburg. After living several years in New York and Frankfurt, they established the shared design studio in Sweden 2016. The studio approaches design in all scales, from spatial projects to tactile objects in the hand's scale. The studio´s design philosophy is identified by a search for a pure and restrained design, celebrating the added values that makes a project unique and genuine. The inspiration is often found in the contrasts, between north and south and in the dynamic between tranquil nature and pulsing cityscapes. Kauppi & Kauppi has won several international awards. In 2020, their ottoman Hygge was presented by Karl Andersson & Söner.
