MARKERAD takes classic minimalist designs and builds on them with the artistic references and subversive elements typical of Virgil’s work, with his iconic quotation marks found throughout. The collection is perfect for anyone who wants a high fashion edge and touch to their interior space.

Called MARKERED – which means “marked” in Sweedish. A nod to Virgils iconic use of quotation marks.
