Marimekko Bo Boo
In the 1970’s, Marimekko prints took on new character with the introduction of two Japanese designers, one in particular was named Katsuji Wakisaka. He loved to blur the line between living room and nursery to produce many exuberant pop patterns such as Bo Boo. Obsessed with the condensed style of cartoon graphics, many of Wakisaka’s designs resemble children’s book illustrations. Looking at the primary-colored cars and trucks that zoom across the bright white background is leavening. This print has brought joy to children all over the world giving them something to smile about since its creation in 1975.
