Marimekko

Posted on 5 ноября, 2020 by minini

Marimekko Oyj is a Finnish home furnishings, textiles, and fashion company based in Helsinki. It made important contributions to fashion in the marimekko. It is particularly noted for its brightly colored printed fabrics and simple styles, used both in women’s garments and in home furnishings. Two designers in particular, Vuokko Nurmesniemi, with bold stripes, and Maija Isola, with large simple flowered prints such as the Unikko poppy, created hundreds of distinctive patterns and helped to make Marimekko a household name across the world. The co-founder, Armi Ratia, considered Armi as the company’s name, but it was already registered. Viljo considered different names for women’s clothing. Marimekko was founded in 1951 by Viljo and Armi Ratia, after the Viljo’s oil-cloth factory project failed and was converted to a garment plant.

Armi asked some artist friends to apply their graphic designs to textiles. To show how the fabric could be used, the company then designed and sold a line of simple dresses using their fabric. Two pioneering designers set the tone for Marimekko: Vuokko Nurmesniemi in the 1950s and Maija Isola in the 1960s. Marimekko spread to America in the 1960s. It was introduced to the United States by the architect Benjamin C.

Thompson, who featured them in his Design Research stores. By 1965, the company employed over 400 staff, and the company was in every aspect of fine design, from fabrics to toys and dinnerware. The firm even completely equipped small houses with furnishings. In 1985, the company was sold to Amer-yhtymä. In the early 1990s, Marimekko was in a bad financial condition and close to bankruptcy. Later in the 1990s Marimekko achieved publicity in the hit TV series Sex and the City.

The fictional main character of the series, sex-and-relationship columnist Carrie Bradshaw, wore a Marimekko bikini on season 2 and then a Marimekko dress. In 2005, Marimekko’s revenue had quadrupled since Paakkanen’s purchase, and its net income had grown 200-fold. In 2007, Paakkanen announced she would gradually hand over her ownership to Mika Ihamuotila as CEO and biggest owner of the company. By 2011 there were 84 stores across the world. The logo of Marimekko has been in use since 1954. Armi Ratia wanted the logo to be simple and timeless.

Graphic designer Helge Mether-Borgström used modified versions of classic Olivetti typewriter letters to create the logo. The Marimekko name has been adopted within business and the management consultancy industry to refer to a specific type of bar chart known as a Mosaic plot or a proportional-stacked bar chart. Cindy Babski wrote in the New York Times that «There was never any doubt about what the inside label would say. The clothes and fabrics, with their striking design and splashes of bold color, were clearly Marimekko. But for people of a certain generation—those who came of age in the 1960s—they represented more than just a brand name: They conjured up an image and an era. In 2007, Heidi Avellan wrote in the Swedish newspaper Sydsvenskan that Marimekko was no longer a «statement, just as T-shirts with revolutionary Che Guevara or Palestinian scarves rarely express any political awareness.
