My best design moment: When I come up with a good idea after really pushing it, often after I have almost given up

The thing I hope to bring to Marimekko: A personal approach to new materials


When I travel I always take: Ear plugs and my own pillow

The pattern I’m most fascinated with right now: Street maps


The best Sunday morning music: Massive Attack, Tori Amos, Henry Purcell
