Oiva Unikko plate Ø13.5 cm
The small Oiva Unikko plate is the perfect dish for enjoying starters, desserts, and all sorts of small snacks or sides. Designed by Sami Ruotsalainen with a pattern by Maija and Kristina Isola, the history behind the Unikko pattern is a rather storied tale. The striking Unikko pattern was originally conceived in 1964 after Marimekko's founder Armi Ratia proclaimed an all-out ban on floral prints. Despite this, Maija Isola managed to persuade Armi with this lovely poppy-inspired motif — thus the iconic Unikko pattern was born. Ever since that time the print has become one of Marimekko's most signature and recognizable patterns.
