John Brauer founded Essey around the concept of using symbolism or metaphors to promote a given function or the inner nature of an object. This “symbolic functionalism” is the heart of Essey’s design philosophy.
Designer of the flyswatter, Tarmo Likki, is a finnish autodidact designer. Since 1979 Tarmo Likki has designed and manufactured leather products such as shoulder bags, rug sacks and footwear.
