Marimekko's new spring and summer designs and Artek's stools clad in a new print will be introduced in Milan with a common concept.

The Milan fair is the most important international event in the field of interior decoration with nearly 250,000 design professionals visiting it annually from all around the world.

Salone Internazionale del Mobile, 16–21 April 2008

”I think it is magnificent that Marimekko and Artek, two Finnish top design houses, join their forces in Milan in a ground-breaking and highly differentiating manner.

I am sure that our co-presentation will evoke plenty of interest in our companies and Finnish design”, says Mika Ihamuotila, President of Marimekko.

”The purity and authenticity of Finnish design gain an utterly new dimension in our common project. For the last two years, the Artek Pavilion has been the meeting-point in Milan.

This year, we create something new and fascinating by collaborating with Marimekko”, points out Mirkku Kullberg, the Managing Director of Artek.
