Dreamy pamperland for Marimekko Kioski 🌧

Marimekko Kioski fall/winter 2021 is all about kindness and respect –
and being kind to everything and everyone also includes yourself.

The new edition of Kioski explores the mindscapes of inner well-being and overall life
balance through meditative prints and calming colorways combined with the laid-back aesthetic of the ’90s.

My favorite part was creating these cute and comfy clouds based on Maija Isola’s print called Lokki, one of Marimekko’s most iconic fabrics. ☁️

Logo design for a pop up store in Lasipalatsi, Helsinki.

Books & Plants pop up is inspired by the Amos Rex exhibition Between Us
by Karoliina Hellberg, Raimo Saarinen and Tero Kuitunen.

The plant selection has been curated by artist Raimo Saarinen, whose installations are on show at the Between us exhibition. Each of the plants have their own character, but together they make a good team. The plants are complemented by a selection of books from the Amos Rex Shop, with a special focus on plants, gardens, nature and ecology.

The Marimekko Kioski Coexist Edition reminds us of the wonderful world we live in.
Our coexistence with nature is all about respect –
and being kind and fair to everything and everyone.

The new Kioski campaign invites you to an animated
Marimekko world where harmony among all creatures thrives.

The campaign’s sound design was created by Licaxxx, a producer and DJ
from Tokyo, who has composed a conceptual piece of music by
utilizing a sound library based on field recordings from
the Marimekko printing mill.
