2014 marks the 50th anniversary of Unikko, one of Marimekko’s most iconic patterns.
More than 50 years ago, Marimekko founder Armi Ratia announced the company would never print floral patterns. Defying Armi, Maija Isola designed an entire collection of floral patterns including the now famous poppy flower print called Unikko. Today, it is still one of the most pertinent patterns for the brand and numerous colorways have been produced.
To celebrate the 50th birthday, a limited edition of Oiva dinnerware, featuring the pattern in a black and white colorway with a special anniversary stamp, will be available throughout the year at FinnStyle.com, an online store which ships to Australia.
