Marimekko, established in 1951, is a Finnish textile and clothing design company renowned for its original prints and colours. The company designs and manufactures high-quality clothing, interior decoration textiles, bags and other accessories. Strong and distinctive product design is the cornerstone of Marimekko’s operations and corporate culture. The starting point for design is that each individual Marimekko product must earn its own design value and express Marimekko’s lifestyle concept. Alongside distinctive and individual design there is a stress on the functionality and practical aspects of the products. Design proceeds in close interaction with production, sales and marketing.

Whether well-known and recognised names or young promising talents at the beginning of their career, Marimekko’s designers are all among the leading figures in their field. Marimekko has always collaborated closely with students of design and young designers, a mutually beneficial relationship in which young designers can demonstrate their skills, while Marimekko gains new impulses and a feel for contemporary phenomena.

Jean-Paul Gaultier´s collaboration with Roche Bobois has resulted in a collection featuring a transformable, mah-jong-like sofa, a bed, a paravent, a floor mat, and many cushions, all in typical Gaultier prints, including his nautical stripes.

Since its beginnings in 2006, INALUXE has always been a thing of passion. The driving force behind it has consistently been a desire to create. While the range and products change, the philosophy behind it remain the same – “Do or do not… there is no try” Yoda, Star Wars – Empire Strikes Back.

Inaluxe is Kristina Sostarko and Jason Odd. Two art students who met way back when there was no such thing as “too much beer” and sleep was something you did when you were dead, or perhaps once a week! With a belief that anything is possible. Inaluxe philosophy is simple: make it beautiful, use the best materials possible, and be responsible and sustainable in production practice. They want to feel great about what they do, and make, therefore they only print on the best  archival fine art papers, working with the best giclee reproduction print technology there is.  In the end you have a print that is created to gallery specification and standard, has an incredible depth of colour, and will last many years to come.
