Marianne Richter (1916-2010) was recruited at MMF by one of well-known MMF designers, Barbro Nilsson. Nilsson saw Richter’s talent in colors and trained her to be a colorist. Richter’s bold choices for whimsical and folk-art colors were her palette. Along with several series of gobelin tapestries, she designed rolakan and flossa.
She continued her career by teaching at Konsfack, designing for MMF and for other weaving mills. One of her featured works is the curtain for the UN Economic Council Chamber in NewYork, that she designed and was commissioned to oversee production.
