    ABOUT US

    Trees have provided from the beginning of times material for us and explained the fundamental laws of life. Wood has been always deeply connected with people.

    In Summer 2017 was born viilu – from the passion for wood. Viilu is a Finnish word which means veneer, a thin layer of wood. viilu products include  jewelry and small interior decoration products.

    OUR STORY

    We are a designer couple Susanna and Tobias Feuerbacher. Susanna has learned goldsmithing in Lahti, Finland and Tobias has done his carpenter education in Stuttgart, Germany. Our path crossed as we were studying design. Susanna did her student exchange in Germany in the same University, where Tobias was studying. It wasn’t love at first sight, but we had similar thoughts about design.

    We did first prototypes of wooden jewelry in 2015 and one bigger jewelry related project together in 2016. We noticed, that we work well together. We both like harmony and clearness in our designs. The design process starts with an idea from one of us and the other one continues it, and so on. So our designs are made more or less together.

    We work and live at our farm in Karkkila, Finland. The farm belongs to Susanna’s family. Susanna’s grandparents lived here and made their living as farmers. We moved here 2016 and have been renovating here ever since. In the year 2017 we started our company and Viilu Jewelry was born.

    Our manufacturing techniques have roots in traditional and innovative woodwork and goldsmithing. We produce all the wooden parts ourselves from veneer gluing till the final piece. Finishing of the products are made by hand. This way we want to honor the material and give a hand made touch to it. Like every tree, every piece of wood has its own character and story to tell.
