About


Hi, 

I am Finnish Textile Designer and Artisan Kirsi Niemelä from Vantaa.

Design Palet brand was created in 2010 for response to stress and harmful mass production in textile industry. These days we have lost touch with nature by hectic and stressful lifestyle so I aim to bring the nature a little bit closer for everyday life. As a designer I want to take responsible of production and functional design. By using local production I save the environment and I can be sure that the production is responsible. 

Creative Nordic Design From Wild Forest

Mindfulness, well-being and relaxation are the keywords for Lumo Collection. Lumo means enchantment in Finnish, also resembles the words nature forms (luonnon muodot) and ecological (luomu). I searched inspirations to Lumo collection from Central Finland woods, from my family roots where I love to take forest baths in the peaceful and clean wild forest.

Lumo Collection gets its forms from tree stumps and tree trunks for stools, relaxing pillows and trays. The patterns were drawn while exploring the pine bark and annual rings, which took shape as creative combinations of pattern and product design. While in an inspiring trip in the woods a big Ural owl was watching me on a tree branch. I captured the rare and enchanting encounter with owl for the collection.

Designed and Handmade With Care

All our products are responsibly handmade in Finland with carefully selected sustainable materials. I handmade all textiles in small batches in my home studio and birch veneer products are manufactured responsibly in Central Finland.

‘I design for longevity – rather than following trends, our products will fit in your life for many years to come. Get inspired to make a cozy relaxing spot with our comfortable forest themed pillows, stools and trays! Enjoy and relax with a good conscience!’

Esittely Design Palet

Design Paletin inspiraation lähteenä on rauhoittava ja mieltä hellivä metsä.

Design Palet LUMO mallisto syntyi keväällä 2010 muotoilija ja tekstiiliartesaani Kirsi Niemelän suunnitellessa ekologisia hyvän olon tuotteita hektisen ja kiireisen elämän vastapainoksi. Metsän kannot ja puunrungot siirtyivät muodoiksi ja kuvioiksi rentouttaviin raheihin, tyynyihin ja sisustustuotteisiin. Männyn oksalla istunut lumoava viirupöllö ikuistui malliston sympaattiseksi printiksi. LUMO-malliston rauhalliset luonnon sävyt ja ajattomat luonnon muodot sekä kuviot vievät mielen metsän uumeniin.

Tekstiilit valmistetaan vastuullisesti Vantaalla Design Paletin omalla työhuoneella ja myös puuviilutuotteet ovat valmistuneet Suomessa jo vuodesta 2012.
