Marimekko Home exhibits unique Finnish design thinking in the heart of Brera during Milan Design Week 2016
Via Palermo, 8
Finnish design house Marimekko takes part in Milan Design Week by bringing the Marimekko Home to the heart of Milan on 12–17 April 2016
The Marimekko Home built in Milan will present the design house’s fall/winter 2016 collection. It explores the mindset of strong, confident women when the first signs of fall begin to appear and when winter finally takes over with its cosy charm.
It was inspired by the surrealists’ investigation of the space between fantasy and reality, and how this dialogue can be combined with Marimekko’s inclusive and functionalistic design approach.
Prints by Finnish designer icons, such as Oiva Toikka, Maija Isola and Vuokko Eskolin- Nurmesniemi, create an interesting interplay with more recent prints by Aino-Maija Metsola, Maija Louekari and Sanna Annukka.
