Aleksi Kuokka, born Aleksi Perälä in Perkano, Finland in 1978, works as a freelance industrial designer around the world.
Aleksi Kuokka is one of the driving forces of the new generation of Finnish designers. His designs stem from a perspective of communication. Among others, Kuokka works as a partner at Avian! Design Studio. In addition to Iittala, he has already cooperated with Finlayson, Nokia, Ramirent, SIS Deli, Tapiovaara and Woodnotes. For Iittala, he designed the Ote Glass and was involved in the development of the Sarjaton Collection.
Aleksi Kuokka explained about his design of the Sarjaton Glasses for Iittala that: "Traditional Finnish design has not only a purist and minimalist form, but also the capacity to move the artist's thoughts and intentions. While creating the Sarjaton Glasses, I wanted to use a free line and return to a rather artistic working approach. Computer-based designs are balanced and pure, but they don't have the soul of a free-form drawing."
