Established in 2003, Design Element is a joinery firm specialising in unique interior furnishing.


    We offer a comprehensive range of services of the highest standard from furniture design to installation. We manufacture kitchen furniture, bathroom fixtures, complex interior items, other joinery products and unique pieces of furniture to your exact specifications.


    We are based in Asikkala, Vääksy, near Lake Päijänne.




    For architects, interior or other designers, we make both unique pieces of furniture and complete sets of fixtures for small and large projects based on the drawings provided. As we operate as a team, the skills and capabilities of all joiners can be fully harnessed in each project. We have made furniture for public spaces, residential units and holiday homes.


    The workshop facilities include all the standard machinery needed for joinery work as well as a first-rate paint shop. We have the resources to make furniture from solid wood, painted and veneered board as well as composite products. Our network of partners includes several timber suppliers, audio-visual system designers, upholsterers and other subcontractors engaged in a wide range of crafts.


    “Our common goal is a satisfied customer happy with the end product.”




    Most of our customers are people with a definite idea of the piece of furniture they want for their home. They may have been unable to find a suitable product in shops or may have an old building which requires something different from standard products in terms of dimensions or visual appearance. After the first contact, we hold a meeting with the customer to discuss the details of the preferred piece of furniture. Based on these discussions, we prepare a proposal and submit an offer complete with the delivery timetable. Manufacture starts when the offer is accepted. In keeping without our full service concept, we deliver the furniture on a turnkey basis.


    “The furniture is delivered to the site and installed ready for use.”

    We value artful details and traditional wood-working methods as well as advanced, modern techniques. Our policy is to use the right materials in the right places while making use of state-of-the-art wood-working machinery. All work is carried out with due respect for wood that may have grown for centuries and finds a new lease of life in a valuable piece of furniture. The spirit and nature of such wood when used in our products can be sensed for decades.


    Quality, uniqueness, traditions, craft, respect, timelessness, diversity and future.


    This is Design Element!
