Marimekko is a Finnish design house celebrated worldwide for its original prints and colours. Founded in 1951 by a visionary woman Armi Ratia, Marimekko is said to be one of the world's first real lifestyle brands combining fashion, bags and accessories as well as home decoration into one unique point of view.
"Over the years, we have remained true to our original mission of bringing joy to everyday moments. Through our timeless, distinctive and functional designs, we want to empower people to be happy as they are: to live their lives as they desire and to express their personality boldly through the way that they dress themselves and their homes."
The Oiva coffee cup has no handle and it features the Unikko pattern in white and terracotta. The cup is made of dishwasher, oven, microwave and freezer safe white stoneware. Marimekko’s famous poppy pattern Unikko was born in 1964 in a time when the design house’s collections featured mostly abstract prints. Designer Maija Isola wanted to create something interesting from this organic theme and designed an entire range of floral prints. Today, the iconic flower represents creativity.
Enjoyment of coffee is affected not only by the aroma and freshness of the brew, but by the aesthetics and shape of the cup. We think this Marimekko cup featuring the Unikko print serves up a delicious cup.
