Elisa Defossez

Elisa is a designer based in Helsinki. She studied Industrial Design at ENSAV La Cambre in Brussels and Textile Design at Aalto University. After a few years as a designer at Hermès, she established her own studio in 2021. With the concept of “Nukumori”, a Japanese term that designates a feeling of warmth and coziness, she focuses on textiles, patterns, and colours, to collaborate with actors in industry and crafts. In the continuity of her deep interest in colours in her designs, she explores their expression through painting practice.
