Pasi Välimaa
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. Photo: "Rosa" by Pasi Välimaa - wall hanging (silk and linen), 1998
