A couple of weeks ago I posted an article about Marimekko here. Yesterday the Guardian had a great article about the brand and how it continues to grow and gain international followers. They also had the top 10 Marimekko designs which can be found here.
Marimekko celebrates 60 years of ‘happiness, colors and relationships’ and to mark the occasion Marimekko invited their Facebook fans to demonstrate what they could do with their fabrics. The most exciting ideas were published on the Marimekko website, while participants with the most compelling submissions were invited to participate in a Marimekko workshop at Helsinki headquarters. The result of those sessions was showcased in a group show, which is on exhibit at Jannelli & Volpi’s shop in Milan, Italy.
