What do Uhana Design and MEM by Paula Malleus expect to achieve in New York – read further! Get also to know Mine Güngör.
“At the same time, we feel excited and a bit frightened – we are definitely stepping outside of our comfort zone. However, we believe that the locals get inspired by Finnish products, as it is Nordicness is very popular at the moment. A New Yorker is charmed by Uhana’s distinctive prints and the recognisable, strong, Scandinavian design.
We also hope to get feedback and a few new contacts in our back pockets before we return!”

She is also a former musician, lead singer of the Post Punk band Angelica Kult. Her personality lives in the jewellery and other design products, that are produced ethically in Finland.
