Marianne Westman

Marianne Westman has passed away at the age of 88. Marianne was one of Sweden´s leading designers. During the 1950s she designed among other things the pattern Picknick. Almedahls started a cooperation with Marianne in the summer of 2009. The first step was to recreate Picknick on modern products. Picknick was followed by Pomona, Frisco and Belle Amie. When the magazine Scandinavian Retro asked her (May, 2016) on what she thought of everything she had accomplished, she replied ”I´m not sure how to answer that but I have always had a great time”.
