The Artists Who Shaped Us
The Finnish design house Marimekko turns 70 this year. To celebrate the artists who helped shape the company’s expression, Marimekko has curated a unique anniversary auction of vintage dresses and original artwork in an exclusive collaboration with Bukowskis.
‘The Artists Who Shaped Us’ is an online auction that includes works of art, furniture and textiles from some of the most prominent artists and creators from Finland and Sweden who have worked with Marimekko throughout the company’s 70-year history. The carefully hand-picked selection of vintage dresses contains several iconic styles from different decades. A particular highlight in the auction is a unique skirt designed by Marimekko founder Armi Ratia, who created it for her daughter in the 1950s.
