The story behind Secto
Secto as we know it today was created on the day that Tuula Jusélius interviewed Seppo Koho for a job. The two of them quickly felt a strong chemistry and agreement on design.
They started their collaboration and could look ahead at many years of successful collaboration.
The two Finnish creators have gone the international way and more than 90 % of their creations are sold internationally. In 2017, they created Secto Design USA to strengthen their position on the international market.
