Iittala designer Inga Sempe

Inga Sempé

Inga Sempé (b. 1968) is a French designer, who lives and works in Paris, France. Sempé opened her own studio in 2001. She is known for her work with Scandinavian, Italian and French companies. Her style is timeless and simple, yet not aiming for minimalism. Inga Sempé has an impeccable eye for colours and an exquisite way to use patterns and shapes. Her designs often feature distinctive, inspirational and imaginative elements that catch the eye and make the viewer curious to look closer, to touch and to experience the items.

Inga Sempé’s home and gift collection for Iittala, Filigraani, is inspired by the traditional filigree art glass originally developed in Murano, Venice in the 16th century.
