Hi there!

I’m Marianne and I work as a creative designer for STUDIO smoo taking action in the boundaries of art and design. My work is often inspired by Nordic traditions which I apply into the modern world. I have a background in textile design which can be seen in the balanced color worlds, haptic dimensions as well as in the rythm of surfaces.

Lately my focus has been on ceramic wall rugs which has a reminiscence to traditional textile rugs. My very first solo exhibition was in Tokyo Japan on September 2018. From January to the end of June 2019 I’m a visiting artist at Arabia Art Department Society.

STUDIO smoo is a creative studio based in Helsinki, Finland and we work with versatile projects from designing everyday objects to visual consulting.
The design values and is often inspired by Nordic traditions which are applied into the modern world. The deep-rooted stories behind designs make the finished pieces bloom. Smoo has a strong grip on new while treasuring traditions. The studio provides the heritage of future; highly considered design which lasts.

Lately we have worked with these lovely companies
