Marimekko : The Art of Printmaking

Marimekko : The Art of Printmaking

Description

"[This] sumptuous book offers exuberant post-pandemic eye candy in its many photos and illustrations."--Ann Landi, Wall Street Journal

Published on the 70th anniversary of the Marimekko brand, this book surveys the classic design collaborations, patterns, and vibrant textiles from the much-loved Finnish lifestyle design house

Marimekko held its first fashion show in 1951, where the clean lines and bright patterns made waves on the Scandinavian fashion scene. By 1960, Jacqueline Kennedy was wearing Marimekko, and the brand established itself as a global presence, frequently being featured in Vogue, Elle, and Harper's Bazaar. Over the past seventy years, Marimekko has created some of the most distinctive patterns in the design industry. Drawing on the wealth of Marimekko's archives, this volume showcases over one hundred iconic patterns and includes never-before-seen imagery.

Four distinct sections guide the reader from the Marimekko philosophy and lifestyle; to its printing factory in Herttoniemi, Finland; on to a rich sourcebook of pattern; and finally to the brand's ultra-sustainable, super-creative future. In-depth case studies are included throughout, showing how Marimekko collaborates with designers to bring their patterns from sketchbook to final print, and the means by which they are manufactured, from sketchbook to screenprinted fabric. This fully illustrated brand history and design resource is essential reading for any lover of print and pattern.
