- Oiva - Unikko plate 13,5 cm, white - beige
Marimekko’s Unikko plate features Maija Isola’s iconic floral pattern in white and beige. The small ceramic plate is 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 recognized around the world.
