Unikko 50 years

This year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Marimekko’s most iconic pattern, Unikko.

Maija isola’s classic Unikko (Poppy) pattern was born in 1964 shortly after the company’s founder Armi Ratia had announced that Marimekko would never print a floral pattern. Maija refused to obey Armi’s orders and, in protest, designed an entire collection of floral patterns.

One of them was Unikko.
