As we share a love of shoes, my mother and I visited the Kunsthal and its exhibition S.H.O.E.S. It was lovely, a kind of windowshopping with no budget. There are some pretty spectaculair shoes out there! When we had seen all shoes, we decided to visit the smaller exhibition on Marimekko as well. The exhibition was called Design for a happy life, and I understand why! These beautiful Finnish designs really put a smile on your face! I mostly knew Marimekko from their flower designs but they make a lot more and different inspiring prints. The designs, some dating back to the 1950’s, are so modern and fresh, really timeless. I also enjoyed the sketches that were on display, I’m a big fan of seeing works in progress!
(I’m sorry for the poor quality of photography. With the Little One to keep busy as well, I wasn’t exactly in the position to go for good quality…)
