Marimekko 2015 collection

25/02/15 10:33 PM


Inspired by the 'unique underwater mood' that comes with snorkelling and scuba diving, 
Marimekko's latest collection features intricate and detailed patterns in oceanic hues. 
The Merivuokko (sea anemone) and Meriheinä (seagrass) designs are the work of
artist and designer Kustaa Saksi, who uses graphic and abstract forms to explore
the natural 
world. Bold layering of orange, yellow and red in the Merivuokko prints help
to create 
a feeling of depth and movement, as well as lend a modern feel to textiles and
The perfect impact piece in living, dining and kitchen spaces. In contrast,
the soft colourways 
and delicate linework in the Merineinä pattern has a calm and gentle 
effect, making it ideal for use in intimate settings such as a reading nook or bedroom. 

The Merivoukko print, in red and blue, is available by the metre, as a cushion cover 
and select tableware

The Meriheinä print in blue, can be purchased as a cushion cover.

Shop our new range of Marimekko clothing, here.

funkis Melbourne

When designing our new Melbourne store, we
chose a bold, monochromatic scheme, using black and grey to visually divide the store into halves. 
Black is prevalent in modern Scandinavian design, while the soft limestone shades used on the
floor, counter and shelving inspired by the nature of Gotland . The key to getting the look right?
Decorate with a mix of organic shapes, tones and textures – try our leather Butterfly Chair
timberware and handmade Lindform ceramic vases


funkis Melbourne

Just like the colour white, black highlights items placed in front of it. Here, our floor-to-ceiling
black shelves show off the colour and pattern in Marimekko fabrics and dinnerware, funkis
timber brush and tableware, and handmade jewellery. To prevent the shelves looking heavy,
Carina kept the face frame timber, which also plays up their geometric form.


funkis Melbourne 

Love black but not quite so much of it? Take your cue from our front display and create a
dramatic dining scene with a round Gubi Table in black-stained ash – it boasts the perfect
proportions. Dress with timber platters and tablewareLindform vases and organic-look
tableware from The Fortynine Studio, then add a touch of glam with a Tom Dixon bowl.
For a crisper dinner setting, shop our black-and-white range of Marimekko tableware.  


funkis Melbourne

A key feature in our Melbourne store is the indoor atrium. Like the shopfront window, the
industrial-look steel windows (combined with timber, grey-painted floors and pendant lights)
set the tone of the space. Inside you'll find our colourful range of Thorberg reading glasses 
and organic L:A Bruket skincare.  


funkis Melbourne 

Made of oiled oak and horse hair, our range of Iris Hantverk brushes are a gorgeous way
to care for your skin and add interest and texture to your bathroom. Hang them in the shower,
add one to your bath caddy or style our nail brush on the basin with a pump pack of 
L:A Bruket Coriander and Black Pepper liquid soap

funkis AW15 moodboard

4/02/15 10:32 AM














Inspired by the landscape and mood of a Scandinavian winter, our new AW15 collection
features clogs and bags in rich, evocative hues including bordeaux (a deep burgundy),
cognac, navy and grey. 

Intense but muted, these accent colours pair beautifully with wardrobe basics like neutrals,
black and denim, as well as brighter hues and bold, graphic prints. Take your fashion
cues from our current selection of clothing from funkisMarimekko and, from March, cult
Swedish label Rodebjer
To give your clogs a cold weather makeover, wear them with tights
or our range of patterned Happy Socks

Made exclusively for funkis by master craftsmen in Småland, Sweden, all our clogs
and bags use genuine leather. The soles of the clogs are sustainable plantation timber,
a hard but fragile material with soul and texture. Some of our clogs and most of our bags 
are veggie-dyed, meaning they'll wear and age beautifully.

All our new-season clogs and bags are now availble for pre-order. Styles will be available
in-store from March. Shop new arrivals here.

Our stores are currently full of amazing ceramic treasures which have been hand-made with love in Sydney by The very talented people at the Fortynine Studio. funkis was recently lucky enough to meet with some of the creative kids (Sarah and Harriett) who very kindly came by to give us some insight in to their beautiful ceramic creations we also asked them some questions about who they are and what they do. 


What is the forty-nine studio and who’s involved?  
The Fortynine Studio was founded by five members and is built on the concept of collaborative design. Designers Ben Elbourne, Sarah Spackman and Harriet Watts continue to design, develop and make work across a range of materials and disciplines including ceramics, textiles, paper and metal, generally at a human scale, to wear, or for the home.


How did you guys all meet? 
We all studied Design at the College of Fine Arts in Sydney. We worked together, became great friends, developed our practice alongside one another, and came to respect each others work and design process (in various permutations of that order)!


Where do you get your artistic inspiration from? 
Probably our most significant source of joy, rejuvenation and inspiration is the natural world, and the Australian landscape in particular. Though it's mostly enough to put us in a room together with a pencil and paper and the conversation gets filled with inspiring and some times ridiculous possibilities. We all have rich experiences to draw from and a strong sense of purpose, so we're never short on ideas.


What's your best advice for creative people who want to run their own business? 
Creativity is only one small aspect of running a business. It's hard work and you sacrifice a lot, but if you can make it work it's really rewarding. If you're going to do it, be organised, make deliberate decisions about what you're doing and why, and get people on board to help you with planning outside your areas of expertise.


What music do you listen to in the studio? 
Oh, all sorts of things. Actually, we often work without music. This week when we've been in making mode we've been listening to Koori radio.


Which is your favourite ceramic piece from the fortynine studio collection? 
Our Flip Flop Slip pasta bowls are an all-time favourite. We all have sets of these at home and eat off them every day.
