Björn Emil Fritzén founded the Fritzén Studio in 2017, after working several years as a lighting and electrical automation specialist in the Finnish archipelago, and later on as project lighting planner and salesman in Turku, Finland.
Björn holds a vocational qualification in electrical engineering and automation. He has also studied Design at the Turku University of Applied Sciences.
Fritzén Studio is based in Finland and represents a combination of Nordic engineering and design with a passion for nature and raw materials.
The intense contrast in light conditions in the Finnish seasons has had a profound impact on the designs created by Björn Fritzén.
Fritzén is often inspired by various shapes and environments in Finnish nature, such as the turbulent sea, the Arctic ice and the distinguished midnight summer sun that does not settle for months in northern Finland.
Fritzén has the ambition to create beautiful functional pieces, shaped from diverse robust materials such as brass, copper and stainless steel, to form sustainable and lasting products.
