Illustrator Kustaa Saksi Debuts in Marimekko’s 2015 Collection

Modern Decor

Kustaa Saksi MerivuokkoFinnish illustrator Kustaa Saksi, who is best known for his layered, richly detailed visual narratives, stars in Marimekko’s 2015 Home collection, having contributed two vivid aquatic motifs to the textile house’s latest fabric selections. Saksi’s multicolored Merivuokko (anemone) and monochromatic Meriheinä (seagrass) designs—both of which will be presented in several colorways, and applied to the Finnish brand’s home textiles and tableware—mark a departure from Marimekko’s signature graphic prints, offering up a contrasting suite of elaborate, highly gestural underwater patterns in Saksi’s energetic illustrative style.
