Tarmo Luisk, Born 31 march 1970
Tarmo Luisk experiments between product design and art. His is a compromise between designer and artist to do a bit of everything. Tarmo Luisk is one of the most well-known and most productive individuals among modern Estonian designers; he has created furniture, lamps and clocks and has also dealt with public space. Luisk’s work is a considered compromise between detail and smartness. He is a perfectionist in design and very critical of himself. He may even redo a sketch of an item a hundred times; it is only important that he himself is pleased with the final result. But most importantly – he believes that design has to be witty. There is always a small trick in his work. He enjoys giving witty titles to his works and so his public looks at his design work through the prism of humour.
