FYRAN is a group of four young designers from Ostrobothnia with a shared interest in pattern design. Ostrobothnia is a region on the west coast of Finland where the majority of the population speaks Swedish. Thanks to the common language, the designers of FYRAN get a lot of their inspiration from Sweden, at the same time they have grown up with strong Finnish design traditions. Fyrans designers get the best from both worlds.
THE WORKING PROCESS OF FYRAN
The pattern collections of Fyran are results of true collaboration. Each pattern design starts from a sketch that changes and evolves as the designers put their own mark on it. Thanks to the strong teamwork throughout the working process the final pattern designs are both dynamic and accessible and bear traces of each designer of Fyran. Together we are strong!
The first collection of Fyran is a story about small villages, wide fields and deep forests. Inspired by our origin, the ostrobothnian landscape and traditions, we have created an entity that tells a story about us.
It has been said a lot of times, but still it is so very true: the earth is a loan from our children. We strive to make timeless and fair products that can be bought, used and saved with joy. Our products are locally produced, printed with toxic free colours on environmentally friendly paper.
SLOW THINGS DOWN!
In a world that is spinning faster and faster we all need to slow down for a moment and reflect, life is what is happening right now and it is real! It is easy to find ourselves living our lives online, constantly chasing after new trends and constantly trying to fit in and be perfect. Life should not be perfect; life should be real and present.
Fyran wants to slow things down. We hope that our products will and can be more than just a “like” online. So, use them and put your personal mark on them. Write your own story!
