£16.00

  • Description

    Unikko came about in 1964 after Marimekko founder Armi Ratia had announced in public that no floral fabrics are designed at Marimekko. Maija Isola did not accept rules or restrictions and designed in protest a complete collection of bold floral patterns. Today, Unikko is probably more popular than ever, and an innumerable amount of different Unikko-pattern products is available. The range of available colours is also very large.

    Maija Isola

    Maija Isola (1927-2001) designed her first printed textiles in 1949 for Printex Oy, Marimekko's predecessor. She worked as head designer of Marimekko's interior fabrics until 1987. She also had an illustrious career as a visual artist.

    Maija Isola was a tremendously versatile and bold artist. She interpreted the events of her era from her own unique perspective and foresaw future trends. Her body of work includes over 500 prints - a brilliant selection of patterns representing different themes and techniques. She drew inspiration from traditional folk art, modern visual art, nature and her countless trips around the world.

    Sami Ruotsalainen

    Sami Ruotsalainen is a graduate of Helsinki's University of Art and Design who started working for Marimekko as an intern. Within six months he was taken on permanently and was combining work with completing his studies. He worked closely with freelance illustrator Maija Louekari for the In Good Company Range and the result is an artfully thoughtful dinner service.
