Marimekko’s Unikko plates are ideal for serving small snacks or as tea bag coasters. Sold in a set of two, the small ceramic plates are part of Sami Ruotsalainen’s clean-lined Oiva tableware collection that suits both casual and festive settings.
The Unikko pattern came about in 1964 after Armi Ratia, the founder of Marimekko, 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: Unikko, a Finnish word that means poppy. Today, Unikko is one of Marimekko's best-known patterns and is recognized worldwide.
