Come Explore Six Decades of Marimekko, From 1951 On

New, 2 comments


The history of a brand like Marimekko can't be summed up neatly. In over sixty years of operation, the company's proffered look, a blotted, mod frenzy of poppies and patterns that look like It's a Small World as a Scandinavian sophisticate, has remained remarkably consistent—and there's decades of shelter magazines adorned with the Finnish standby to prove it. How did these wild designs become classics? It's simple, really: decade after decade of putting poppies everywhere, from upright pianos in the '70s to airplanes in the new millennium.
