fab finnish fabric

A couple of photos of the gorgeous illustration-based fabric coming out of Finland, as seen in a show I stumbled across at the Pendulum Gallery in Vancouver. On till April 29th, the show is called "School of Cool - Fresh Finnish Design" and highlights Finnish fabric and chair design, and architecture.

Afrikan kuningatar (African Queen, 2004) designed by Oiva Toikka (...Isn't Oiva is a great name?)

La Boca (2005) designed by Maija Louekari

Both are designed for a textile, clothing and products company called Marimekko, which has some of the coolest looks - from Finland or anywhere else, for that matter.

V and I were just talking about how much great design stuff is coming from Finland. He got some comics from Finland recently, too - the Finns love their comics. Really, all of Scandinavia seems to have great design - something in the air or water, perhaps?
