Norkke is an Estonian based design brand that was born out of passion for creating functional and beautiful objects out of natural materials. Ever since I came in contact with product design as a profession it has evolved into an integral part of my life and philosophy. For me design is a way of thinking and understanding the world around us. It`s a form of art and expression. It`s also just as much an essential part of everyday life. Sort of an invisible force in the background making sure that everything fits nicely and works comfortably. Design is a great challenge of balancing function and form - one can not dominate over the other but must co-operate and co-exist in harmony. That challenge of finding this balance and creating truly great and useful objects into this world is what makes the essence of Norkke.
