Marimekko, With Love

Добавить в корзину
Part of the broader mid-century modern ethos, Marimekko made its first forays into fabric and fashion design in 1951 and would change the visual landscape indelibly. Marimekko, With Love highlights the Finnish company's early international growth under the leadership of Armi Ratia and the personal relationships that shaped its impact in North America. Featuring classic patterns from Marimekko's dynamic design history, the publication also includes a rich array of documentary materials that provide insight into the company's introduction to audiences in North America through the dialogues between Ratia and the founders of design studios such as Karelia in Toronto, Ontario and Design Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Including over 50 images reproduced in full color, many never published before, as well as original contributions by Armi Ratia and Janis Kravis, founder of Toronto's Karelia, this book is essential reading for those wishing to understand mid-century design and the social relationships at the heart of global culture. Based in Helsinki and a household name around the world, Marimekko has made important contributions to fashion since the 1960s and is particularly noted for brightly colored printed fabrics and simple styles, used both in women's garments and in home furnishings.
