Saina Barazande studied graphic design at a vocational university in Västerbotten, before moving to Stockholm for studies at the design college LiU-Malmstens in 2011. During her last year at Malmstens (2013), Barazande created the stool Umeå, where the burnt legs were to reminisce of the Umeå city fire in 1888, and the massive birch seat to symbolize the threes that later were planted to prevent a future city fire.
The Umeå stool was only made in three copies, of which one is a part of the Museum of Furniture Studies collection and the prototype is held at LiU Malmstens. As her degree project, Barazande made the cabinet Det innersta rummet (The innermost room) made of wood and concrete as well as a poetry book called Ex-arbetet (Ex-Work).
Baranzade works with design that creates feelings and focuses on the way we are affected by the objects that surrounds us. After graduated, Baranzade worked at Arkitema Architects until 2016, when she started working as an interior architect at White Architects.
