Maija Isola/Sami Ruotsalainen for Marimekko - 1964
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. Sami Ruotsalainen designed the Oiva teapot using clean lines inspired by Japanese design; its tranquil character is complimented by the Unikko pattern. The pot and wood-knobbed lid are made of white stoneware ensuring a long lifespan; the glazed colour and pattern remain vibrant.
White stoneware and rubber wood. Hand wash.
