Marimekko’s Umpu vase, designed by Carina Seth Andersson, provides an attractive setting for cut flowers, decorative branches and evergreen foliage. The streamlined silhouette of the glass vase results from the combination of a narrow neck and round body, complemented by a small base. The Umpu vase is made of mouth-blown glass.

Carina Seth Andersson (born in 1965) is a Swedish designer known for her glass and ceramic works that own a unique balance of timeless form and function. The work of Carina Seth Andersson carries a deceptively minimalist feel, concealing a range of highly considered details in which lie the extraordinary functionality of the products.
After graduating with a Master in Fine Arts from Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, Sweden, Carina Seth Andersson has continued to engage in education as a senior lecturer at Beckmans School of Design in Stockholm.
In 1994, Seth Andersson was selected to represent Sweden in the Milan Triennial, and in 1998 she designed glass artefacts for the Quite Simply series in conjunction with the European Capital of Culture project. Carina Seth Andersson has collaborated with many well-known Scandinavian and international design brands and has left a lasting imprint on Finnish design as well: in 2016, Marimekko launched a series of glass vases and textiles, designed by Seth Andersson, that draw inspiration from the brand’s most classic prints. The collection grew with added versions and seasonal colours and became vastly popular.
Carina Seth Andersson’s work has been widely exhibited in galleries and museums internationally, from Helsinki to Osaka. Her pieces have also been permanently included in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and the Designmuseum Danmark in Copenhagen.View all products

”Both my purchases were excellent quality, priced at a very reasonable level and delivered in a matter of days despite me being the other side of the World. There is simply no way to describe that kind of a Company except amazingly good.”
”Amazing products, beautiful website, speedy and secure postage worldwide... what’s not to love? Nothing cheap here, that’s for sure, but this is perfect for special treats, and there’s IKEA for the rest! ;)”

”I ordered a HAY side table that was on back order everywhere else. It was a few hundred crowns more at Finnish Design Shop, but shipped the next day and was delivered to my door two days later, which I think was worth the extra cost. It came well-packaged, protected and the item is in perfect condition. I’m happy and would shop here again.”
”Very good service. Unfortunately some plates were broken. Finnish design shop quickly responds and sends us new ones. That’s how service should be.”
”I’ve bought at Finnish Design Shop many times over the years and I have always been extremely satisfied. Love their range of products (from classics to new awe-inspiring designs). Moreover they have very nice and helpful support team so I would always recommend!”
