Celebrating 10 Years Of Oiva
Designed by Sami Ruotsalainen in 2009, the Oiva (Superb) ceramics are a contemporary classic and the heart of Marimekko's tabletop assortment. This year we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Oiva tableware collection.
Sami Ruotsalainen, a member of Marimekko's creative community since 2001, combines precision with a delicate feeling for materials and form. His vision for Oiva was to design tableware that would be strong enough to stand alone but would also work together with Marimekko's distinctive prints.
The Oiva tableware is suited for everyday living and special occasions alike. The functional yet playful collection encourages mixing and matching shapes and patterns freely - and gathering around the table to enjoy good company.
To mark the jubilee year, selected Oiva pieces and Räsymatto textiles have been updated with golden accents.
Once the form for the tableware was established, Maija Louekari created the beloved Siirtolapuutarha (city garden) and Räsymatto (rag rug) patterns to complement Oiva's shapes.
The dazzling flowers in Maija Louekari's new Eläköön Elämä (Long Live Life) pattern bloom in celebration of the anniversary of the Siirtolapuutarha (City Garden) design.
