  • Elina Helenius

    Elina Helenius is a textile artist and designer and a graduate of the University of Art and Design Helsinki, now known as Aalto University’s School of Arts, Design and Architecture. She is a five-time award-winning designer in Finland, and her works can be seen, for example, at the Helsinki Design Museum, the Nishijin Textile Centre’s Museum in Kyoto, Japan and the Röhsska Museum of Design and Craft in Sweden. The Ornamo Finnish Association of Designers named her the Textile Artist of the Year 2012.

    Helenius’s work is characterised by simple embellishments and elegant colour combinations. With her work, she wants to convey beauty and balance – things she feels we need more of in the world. For VM Carpet, Elina Helenius has designed, for example, the stunning Laituri wool rug.

    DUO-Collection

    The high-quality DUO rugs are made by hand in Finland. They are hard wearing and slide seamlessly into any contemporary decor. They are woven with great professional pride from the best materials, using a soft colour palette and appealing textures. DUO rugs represent timeless design and practical beauty and are both easy to clean and ecological – traditional Nordic design at its best.
    The luxurious and sumptuous DUO rug collection is designed for VM Carpet by textile designer Elina Helenius.

  • Liina Blom

    Liina Blom has twenty years of experience as an international designer and creative director. In her design work, she combines futurology, material and production know-how and the idea of the final application. Through these, she creates new, durable and soulful products that are as long-lived as possible – and she does it with great zeal!

    Working with VM Carpet, Liina has been able to implement carpet designs by combining high-quality and practical materials such as wool and paper, but she has also designed products for wet spaces and tried new, even bold production solutions and materials such as metal. She has most recently been recognised for her skills in the autumn of 2016 when she won the MoOD AWARD in Belgium.

    Liina describes the idea behind the Valkea rug she designed for VM Carpet like this: “A luxurious moment in the pale shimmer of a silent winter night, while you curl up in something soft and warm. Behind every product I design there’s a story, the play of materials and weave, and the idea of its ultimate use. The Valkea rug offers quality and a sprinkle of the familiar, while wool and paper bring a twist to its woven surface.”
