Unleashing the Platform for Arts and Creativity

Designing the future is a creative process. Idean stands for “I got an idea” in Finnish – the light bulb moment, the space in time where revelation, enlightenment, and creativity connects.

We want to provide a platform and shine a light on people who are purely connected to their arts and crafts. Not only as designers, but also musicians, painters, vocalists alike. In this section, we bring up a collection of artists that Idean supports in various forms.


Semmarit a.ka. Seminaarinmäen Mieslaulajat is a vocal group founded in 1989 Finland as part of the University of Jyväskylä. They wanted to bring something quite different and new to the male choir scene. Right from the beginning the choir has been quite a success with their concept – Semmarit performs original music with an action-packed live show containing strong elements from rock-music, theater and well, whatever they come up with!

In fact, Semmarit is a very famous show group in Finland. They also have performed in Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and Portugal. Semmarit has made a four-part tv-show of their own and has a wide experience of performing in various tv-programs both in Finland and abroad also. The live show of the choir is a mix of music, humour, dance and drama. When performing abroad, Semmarit sings in English but has also translated their songs in French, German and Portugese.

Joshua Ledet

Idean worked with an American Idol and soul artist Joshua Ledet to create spectacular songs Love Can Do and Shine Your Light. With these songs we are reminded of the power of love and passion – and how it provides the strength to reach our dreams, be grateful, and be inspired about the future.
