Many people believe that design is all about aesthetics. Good design is about so much more than creating a good-looking product.
Designers actually have the ability to influence what we think, the way we feel and the decisions we make. In this talk, Sasha will talk about the role of design in shaping our world and talk about how Koskela has harnessed the power of design to influence change.
Sasha is the Co-founder of Koskela. An innovative and inspiring Australian furniture, design and lifestyle brand. Committed to exceptional design, manufacturing in Australia, protecting our environment, and championing social enterprise. She studied Law and worked as the National Communications Manager for the Australian Stock Exchange, before starting Koskela with her partner Russel in 2000.
Together they have created a successful furniture and design business, winning prestigious design prizes and attracting clients such as Apple, Google, and Australia’s leading law firms and banks. As a Certified B Corporation, they have implemented an ethical agenda across all areas of the business. Sasha is especially passionate about Koskela’s social impact division, which supports and celebrates the work of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community art centres throughout Australia.
