Sanna Hansson (adopted from India 1971) lives in Stockholm and works as a freelance product, furniture designer and a design and image consultant.

Educated in design, advertising and art in Sweden and New York, she started to receive much attention from the media in 1995, when she designed a toilette-seat shaped chair called Waiting Friend and a Walking Table that simbolically "walks out" (bored?) from a traditional Swedish gathering.

Her list of collaborations goes from Electrolux, Tom Dixon and Kosta Boda to Swedish up-to-date furniture producers like Källemo and Kasthall.

Sanna's interest for design as a medium for artistic and social messages brings her to develop projects like Be Anywhere, where design is a key to human behaviours and society.
