‘My greatest fashion icon
The most important thing to remember when decorating a room
Take your time. Rome wasn’t built in a day.
I work best when
It’s day. I can’t work at night.
The word that best describes my design philosophy
My first memory of Marimekko
A coat my grandmother wore
The Marimekko product I use all the time
A cup for my brushes
The thing I hope to bring to Marimekko
A great passion for patterns
I love to wear sunglasses when I’m tired and a big knitted scarfwhen I’m cold.
The colour that means comfort to me
The colour that means courage to me
Three things I can’t live without right now
My daughter, my favourite pencil, and good weather
Three things I couldn’t live without when I was a teenager
Coffee, my friends, and a good book
My favourite escape
If I were not working as a designer, I would be
Working in a bookshop’ https://www.marimekko.com/marimekko/design/anna-danielsson
Anna Danielsson is a key designer in the Marimekko company, Danielsson’s first printed fabrics appeared in Marimekko’s 2001 spring collection. This catapulted her into the Scandinavian printed fabric market and her designs such as Bottna, Fokus and Snar have an automatic association with the Danielsson. The prints’ show evidence of graphic inspiration and have been included in Marimekko’s collections. Danielsson’s patterns are contemporary and timeless, but also have an edge which catapults her designs into a broad market.
I have taken a keen interest in the use of Danielsson’s positive and negative space in which she evidently considers when designing. Although Danielsson’s designs appear to be simple, they look intricate to the eye because of the use of positive and negative space.
Although I add tone and a three dimensional effect to my designs, it is the same concept of using negative and positive and space to create an illusion or to attract the eye.
