sven markelius textile, swedish textile, midcentury modern textile

Just when I think all the huge talents of Swedish mid century textile design have been fully accounted for another name pops to the surface. Today it’s Sven Markelius, “one the most important modernist Swedish architects.” As a google image search quickly proves, he also designed textiles. The framed Markelius pattern pictured above was sold by Modern 50 and is highlighted here by Mid-Centuria as a “mathematic inspired” print of the 1950’s.
