Marimekko – Design for a happy life

Tijdens ons bezoekje aan de Kunsthal bezochten we natuurlijk ook de Marimekko tentoonstelling.
Wat een prachtige kleuren en (scandinavische) vormgeving!

Ik kende het merk uiteraard al langer. Het design is erg herkenbaar.
Maar het verhaal erachter wist ik nog niet.

Sinds de oprichting van het bedrijf in 1951 heeft Marimekko de missie om met mode en design de kwaliteit van leven te verbeteren. Zowel de betekenis van Marimekko als cultuurgoed van het destijds nog maar kort onafhankelijke Finland als de actualiteit van het typerende Marimekko-ontwerp worden in de tentoonstelling onder de loep genomen. De concept stores in Seoul, Berlijn en New York tonen aan hoe actueel het merk ook nu nog is. Marimekko wordt vandaag de dag wereldwijd erkend als hét icoon van Fins design. De heldere ontwerpen die op het netvlies blijven hangen, laten daarbij nooit onverschillig; ‘you love it oryou hate it’.

Zeg je Marimekko dan denk je gelijk aan kleuren en geweldige dessins. Vooral bekend zijn ze geworden met de bloemenserie Unikko. Dit Finse bedrijf ziet voor het eerst het licht in 1951. In dat jaar wordt ook de eerste modeshow gelopen en iedereen is dolenthousiasts over de unieke kleurcombinaties en heldere ontwerpen. Alle kleding wordt bijna direct na de show opgekocht. Een jaar later wordt in Helsinki de eerste winkel geopend. Marimekko maakt kleding die de vrouw haar vrijheid gaf. En ook zakelijk gezien werd Marimekko altijd door een vrouw bestuurd. Tot 2007 toen voor het eerst een man de leiding kreeg.

Marimekko levert o.a.: keukenaccessoires, servies, stoffen, woonaccessoires, badkameraccessoires, kleding.

Niet alleen de stoffen vind ik prachtig.
Van het servies word ik ook erg hebberig!

De schetsen van het logo waren ook te bewonderen.
En niet alleen van het logo.
Er hingen ook allerlei schetsen van stoffen. Heel leerzaam en leuk om te zien voor m.n Juliëtte (14). Juul wil graag “iets met ontwerpen en design” gaan doen. Op deze manier kon ze goed zien dat alles begint met een simpel ontwerpje/tekeningetje op papier en kon het resultaat in een meterslange lap stof zien.

De Marimekko tentoonstelling is nog te zien tot 11 Mei in de Kunsthal

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
