Microsoft has collaborated with Finnish design house Marimekko on accessories for Microsoft’s Surface products. The collection will be available starting this month and it includes four Marimekko-patterned skins. The collection will expand in the fall this year and will include two Marimekko-patterned sleeves. Products in this collection from Marimekko will be sold by Microsoft online and in its retail stores worldwide.
Microsoft has launched a couple of new Surface products recently. It launched the Windows 10 S-powered Surface Laptop a few weeks back. Earlier today, the company announced the launch of the Surface Pro in Shanghai. It’s an incremental update of the Surface Pro 4, not the much-rumored Surface Pro 5.
Marimekko’s accessories for Surface products feature some of the design house’s most iconic prints and modern classics. The skins will be available later this month in Unikko and Kaivo (well) prints designed by Maija Isola in 1964 and Räsymatto and Siirtolapuutarha (city garden) prints that were designed by Maija Louekari in 2009.
The sleeves will be available in Unikko (poppy) and Räsymatto (rag rug) prints. Pricing for these accessories has not yet been confirmed but since the skins are due to be released later this month, we should find out how much they cost in the near future. As previously mentioned, the sleeves will not be available for purchase until the fall this year.
