Colour & Status

Color and color have always been used as a marker for social or professional status, rank and culture. Today, the concept of status is more complex, fast-moving and can differ markedly in different subcultures. Status can also describe a state, position or location.

Färg & Status

Färg och kulör har i alla tider använts som markör för social eller professionell status, rang och kultur. Idag är statusbegreppet mer komplext, snabbrörligt och kan skilja sig markant åt i olika subkulturer.  Status kan också beskriva ett tillstånd, position eller läge.

Bio-Depth – A dark and mystic colour palette

Explore the dark and mystic colour palette of Bio-Depth, one of the important colour trends for 2021+. from NCS Colour. This trend is inspired by a reaction to the dramatic change and uncertainty of the world. We realise that our well-being is much more important than materialism.

In the summer of 2020, Marabouparken presents a large retrospective exhibition with works by Wanja Djanaieff – one of Sweden’s most influential textile designers. Djanaieff has been Head of Design at NK Design Group and Strömma Sweden, among others.


Her work became known to a wide audience when she designed clothes for the Swedish Olympic squad in Munich in 1972. The clothes, adorned with a pattern of yellow crowns on a blue background, also went on sale at NK and became a bestseller.

She has also worked as a scenographer, costume designer, professor and project manager. The exhibition at Marabouparken shows sketches, clothes and the iconic patterns that have come to be style-forming for an entire era.
