One of my favourite artist/ illustrator designer's without a doubt is Klaus Haapaniemi. From Finland his work is full of folklore and 'magic', reminding me of my Scandinavian roots. It is quirky and whimsical but slightly odd and yet looks lush and beautiful. His style is so versatile looking equally good on the wall, on fabric products in a children's book or in Vogue. I often look to see what he has been up to and was delighted to see his new work- It's great!!
Klaus Haapaniemi for Iittala from his Taika series.
This is Klaus Haapaniemi's new pattern for Iittala called Korento.
