Description

Samuji's velvet cushion cover is decorated with Matti Pikkujämsä's Uninen pattern, designed by the illustrator-graphic artist on his trip to Tokyo. One sleepless night caused by jet lag, he sat at the corner table of a Shibuyan bar and sketched patterns on paper with the indigo-toned ink he had just purchased. The dreamy, ambiguous pattern was named Uninen, after the Finnish words for “sleepy”. The cushion cover from the Samuji Koti collection is made in Estonia from Italian surplus velvet.
