Finnish by origin, Pasi Välimaa's colours represent Scandinavian
nature: black and brown symbolise the woods, pink and violet the flowers.
Although considered a designer, his work in monochrome wall hangings,
true craftsmanship, is seen as art and is not used in a truly functional
sense, as a day-to-day fabric. This is the joining of Art and Design.
