Matilda Palmu is Helsinki-based designer and artist. Matilda has background in crafts, product and furniture design, applied arts and currently she’s finishing her MA studies in Aalto University in the field of textile design. Art has gradually taken over her work and she describes her work as design art. It’s important to Matilda that her works have some kind of statement or a story. She believes that visual objects are strong mediums for transmitting messages.
"I love working with different materials and sometimes I let the material take over and lead the way in my creative process. Making textiles has been so inspirational. I feel that textiles are perfect medium for transmitting stories - there’s endless opportunities with color, material and pattern combinations. I’m excited to see where this new choice of material will take me.”
