Tomi Leppänen is a Finnish graphic designer behind Typewriter collection. A collection of rugs for both out- and indoors, textile handmade of recycled plastic bottles and details embroidered by hand. Inspiration for Typewriter rug Collection comes from Tomi's obsession with typography. Freshly Nordic, joyful and minimalistic design is a study of the four most basic glyphs. Tomi is obsessed with the Smiley symbols and emotions and those became the theme for the Typewriter collection.
This is not totally new area for Tomi, as he has learned about Anni Albers's use of this technique at the Bauhaus. Albers made some experiments for her textile patterns with using glyphs only.
