Description

Marimekko's Alku bowl is adorned with a dotted pattern by Maija Louekari. The ceramic salad and serving bowl is part of Sami Ruotsalainen’s clean-lined Oiva tableware collection that suits both casual and festive settings.

Originally introduced in 2019, Alku (”the beginning”) and Eläköön elämä (”salute to life”) patterns celebrate the 10th anniversary of two Marimekko classics, Maija Louekari’s Siirtolapuutarha collection and Sami Ruotsalainen’s Oiva tableware range. The dotted Alku depicts the seeds of the flowers on the Eläköön elämä pattern.

Maija Louekari

Finnish print designer Maija Louekari (b. 1982) is well-known especially for the textile prints designed for Marimekko. Louekari has studied at the University of Art and Design Helsinki, and in 2003 she won a design competition organized jointly by her university and Marimekko. She has worked as a freelance designer for Marimekko ever since.

Louekari finds inspiration for her patterns from everyday life and the small things, people and sounds that surround her. Also different environments from urban metropolises to Finnish forests contribute to her work. Most of Louekari’s large, uniform patterns have been hand-drawn, and she also likes to experiment with different techniques such as paper cutting. Among her most important works are the Siirtolapuutarha and Räsymatto patterns, originally designed for Marimekko's Oiva tableware range in 2009.
