This book—the first comprehensive study of Marimekko designs—presents more than one hundred examples of the exuberant Marimekko fashions and home furnishings that gave the company a definitive presence on the world design stage.

The book considers the history of the company from its founding through today and examines Marimekko’s impact on design in Finland and around the world. The company’s most important designers, including Maija Isola and Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi, their contributions, and their stylistic development are also discussed. In addition, the book examines Marimekko home and office interiors and how they reflected the lifestyle envisioned in Armi Ratia’s broad, radical definition of fashion.

Marianne Aav is design historian and director of the Finnish Museum of Art and Design, Helsinki.

This book was the catalogue for the 2003 exhibition at the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design, and Culture, New York.

Edited by Marianne Aav from Yale University Press 2003.
