The most important thing to remember when decorating a room
Light, space, energy
My greatest design influence
Artists – the old masters and new talents
My best design moment
When I designed Kevätjuhla, because it came so spontaneously
My most important mentor
God. I don’t listen to anyone else.
The word that best describes my design philosophy
My first memory of Marimekko
When I moved to Helsinki in 1969 and got to know the company and thought, I’m going to work there someday
The thing I hope to bring to Marimekko
Energy, strength, animal intelligence
The shape I’m most fascinated with right now
Calf – the animal, not the body part
The smell that reminds me of childhood
My favourite escape
The barn, the sea, airplanes, the forest, the workbench
Sketch by hand or click on computer?
It’s the result that matters, not the method
If I were not working as a designer, I would be
I have no idea. I was born to be a sculptor.
