The Marimekko Unikko plate features Maija Isola’s iconic floral pattern in beautiful shades of white and dark blue. Made from brown stoneware, the plate is decorated and glazed on the inside but left untreated on the outside for a perfectly imperfect finish. The 25-centimetre size is ideal for a sandwich or a salad, for example.

The instantly recognizable Unikko pattern came about in 1964 after Armi Ratia, the founder of Marimekko, had announced in public that no floral fabrics would be made at Marimekko. However, textile designer Maija Isola was not one for rules or restrictions – in protest, she designed a complete collection of bold floral patterns. One of them was named Unikko, Finnish for "poppy", and it quickly became a favourite of Ratia, as well. Today, Unikko is one of Marimekko's best-known patterns, and it adorns a variety of objects from fabrics and bed linen to Sami Ruotsalainen’s clean-lined Oiva tableware collection.
