Marimekko Oiva ‘Juhla Unikko’ Set of 2 Mugs, Anniversary Set
Set of 2 Mugs, 2.5 dl each
The Marimekko Juhla Unikko mugs celebrate the 70th anniversary of the brand founded in 1951. The set includes two mugs: one with a black Unikko motif printed on a white background, and one with a white Unikko on a black background. The limited-edition anniversary mugs come in a special gift box.
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.
