Kaldor and Marimekko fabrics in unlikely places
April 18, 2010 § 1 Comment
A couple of weeks ago I visited a friend in Westmead Hospital in Sydney. I was taken by what looked like a painting in the foyer. When I went closer to inspect it the blurb next to it informed me it was a Kaldor fabric panel. It went on to say that there were many such throughout the hospital as well some from the Finnish company Marimekko. On my journey through the rabbit warren of corridors I didn’t see any more but if you’re visiting see if you can spot any. There is a publication on the web that mentions them and has a photo a good deal better than the one my mobile phone took. Here is the link. Scroll down to page 84 and you’ll see the John Kaldor and the Marimekko panels.
