Helsinki Remade Vintage Linen
Elizabeth Salonen (b. 1981) founded industrial design firm Mottoform in 2005 after moving to Helsinki from Canada. She has already been noted for her Lumi collection of women-specific sports watches and accessories, designed for Suunto.
After moving to Helsinki, Salonen became inspired by the original details of 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.
