Skandium will launch a range of new fabrics by Finnish manufacturer and designer Marimekko at this year’s 100% Design show. The range includes designs by young artist Erja Hivi (Bottna pictured) and a 1949 design by Maija Isola called Amfora. Credited with being the fabric that led to her discovery by Marimekko founder Armi Ratia, Amfora was designed for Printex before Marimekko was launched. 100% Design takes place at London’s Earls Court from 25-28 September.
