Koskela was founded by partners Russel Koskela and Sasha Titchkosky in 2000, who left behind lucrative careers in the corporate world in a bid to create a furniture and design company with a courageous mindset and strong social conscience. They sought to bring their vision to life with Australian manufacturing. The ongoing success of Koskela can be attributed to the integrity of the founders who remain true to their original vision and values.
Create genuine impact
When we design or work with makers, we ask how ourselves: will this make things better? Will it leave a real and lasting impression on people without leaving a big footprint on the planet? Is this part of a more circular economy?
We seek out the individuals and communities with their local customs and practices that we think are doing something special. We want to show everyone the magic that can come from collaborating with local artisans that have a different take on the world.
Design with intent
Everything we design is done with the purpose of enriching the spaces we inhabit so life is more pleasurable. We see the emotional connection with our spaces being just as important as the functional use of each piece.
