Patterns, motifs, repeats, prints – our little darlings come with many names and purposes. Over the years we have designed patterns both as ornaments and for textiles, as well as for brands as part of a visual concept. A good repeat pattern can be beautifully extended and scaled, at best also being modifiable for various applications. Colours, shapes, structures, rhythm and scale create a pattern.

Salo

The image in the Salo pattern is from André Heller’s garden in the town of Salò in Italy. The pattern was launched in the town of Salo in Finland at the Matilda design event.

A good pattern element is recognizable, capable of being repeated beautifully, and easily scalable.
