Reeta Ek

Reeta Ek (b.1979) is an artist, who holds a Master’s degree in textile art from the Aalto University in Helsinki. She has worked as a textile designer for companies like Marimekko, Nanso and Lapuan Kankurit. Ek finds inspiration for her work from things in everyday life, rhythm and colors. According to Ek: ”Good ideas are often born in the morning by a cup of coffee and browsing the newspaper. However, you can’t sit down and wait for the inspiration to come, but it evolves and grows by doing, and also through mistakes.” Reeta Ek won the Young Designer of the Year prize in September 2017.
