about/Lauri Löppönen

Lauri Löppönen is a Helsinki-based multidisciplinary artist and designer. Forging high-quality items
ranging from durable fetish wear to wearable art pieces and curiosities, Löppönen utilises mostly
recycled and found materials in his work. There is a common thread that brings the rich universe
of Löppönen’s work together: a strong inspiration drawn from classical art, handicrafts
and the traditional methods they use. (Read more about the materials used in the ‘Doctrine’ section.)

Available for commissions, collaborations and features.
