Asko Lax was born and grew up in the town of Pudasjärvi in Northern Ostrobothnia, and left for the city of Oulu in the 1980s to study architecture.
In 1991 he became a student of industrial design at ArtCenter College of Design that opened a European campus in Switzerland in 1986. He completed part of his degree in the main location of the institute in Pasadena, Los Angeles, and graduated as an industrial designer and ArtCenter's first ever Finn in 1993.

In addition to furniture design he has acted as a design director at Polar Electro and has his own architecture practice. Lax's wooden buildings can be found in more than 15 different countries.
