The history of jewelry design in my family began in 1860, when
Alexander E. Tillander founded a goldsmithery in St. Petersburg.
My father, Torbjörn Tillander, was Alexander’s great-grandson.
He founded his own company in 1956, and in 1960 he opened a studio
on Kalevankatu in Helsinki. Between 1967 and 1986, the studio was
located on Tehtaankatu, and in 1985 Atelier Torbjörn Tillander
opened a studio on Kluuvikatu.
Jewelry has been an essential part of my life since childhood.
I started my career as my father’s apprentice on Tehtaankatu in 1981. At the Kluuvikatu studio, I worked as a head designer from the opening of the studio until November 2007.
My long-time dream about an own studio became real in December 2007. I opened my own studio on Tehtaankatu, where the customer gets personal service. In May 2016 I moved my Ateljé and shop to Mikonkatu 3 Helsinki. I recommend to book an appointment because then we can at leisure look at my models and different options.
Mikonkatu Ateljé & Shop open Weekdays 10-19 and Saturdays 10-17. Welcome!
