Helsinki remade

Helsinki Remade - Mottoform via Design Forum Finland
Finnish-Canadian designer Elizabeth Salonen established the industrial design firm Mottoform in 2005. After moving to Helsinki from Canada, she became inspired by the details in the city's Art Nouveau architecture. "She worked them into modern graphic motifs and created Helsinki Remade: a collection of vintage textiles with hand-printed patterns remade from the early 20th century buildings – homage to both the history of the houses and old linen."

I love how this project brings together old and new. The clean graphics so beautifully contrasted with the old and imperfect linens. If you'd like to have some of Mottoform's vintage linens around your home, you can buy them through Design Forum Finland's Shop.
