Koskisen's plywood mill invests in decorative plywood product development and sales. In the beginning of March, Tatiana Meyer, Master of Architecture, started as a Decorative Projects Manager. Her task is to promote decorative products in both large and smaller interior architectural projects abroad.
In 2011, Tatiana graduated as an architect from Nancy, a city in the North-East of France. After strengthening her working skills as an architect in Germany, Austria and France, she moved to Finland in 2012 and lives currently in Helsinki.
Previously, Tatiana worked as an Architectural Sales Representative at Inwido Finland Oy, which is manufacturing doors and windows.
“I’m really excited about my new job and I look forward to traveling and meeting customers to promote the use of Finnish wood in architecture abroad.” says Tatiana.
“Koskisen delivered balcony elements to a concert hall in Katowice, Poland, which is a great example of using Finnish wood, especially birch.”
The first weeks at her new position will be about getting to know her colleagues and becoming familiar with Koskisen’s different products.
“People have been very helpful and kind to me, I have a very good feeling about the company.” says Tatiana.
Positive and cheerful Tatiana has learned to appreciate wood as a raw material a long time ago already and her working experience has been very convincing in using wood in all its forms.
“During my studies, I had to build a large scale wooden model of a challenging building. I spent months with my grandpa getting the model ready. He taught me a lot about wood properties and crafting and this is when my interest in it as a building material really started. I’ve also worked in architectural offices which have a great interest in wood, for example CLT panels and wood cladding, and this definitely convinced me of its potential. Finnish birch plywood is a great choice for interior use; it’s uncommon and beautiful and has great technical properties.” says Tatiana.
