Marimekko is 70 years old and they are celebrating that with this special 2.5dl cup set Juhla Unikko. This set contains two Oiva mugs with the Juhla Unikko pattern. The black and white poppies on the mugs are reverse versions of each other. This set is packed in a beautiful anniversary packaging.
The design Unikko (poppy) was born in 1964 after Armi Ratia, the founder of Marimekko, had announced that Marimekko would never print a flower pattern. Maija Isola refused to follow Armi's orders and created - out of protest - a whole series of beautiful floral prints. One of them was Unikko, which has become a story of creativity, strength, courage and confidence in itself.
The content is 2.5 dl with a height of 9.5 cm and a diameter of 8 cm. Suitable for: Oven, microwave, freezer and dishwasher.
The power of Marimekko lies in, among other things, the ability to mix the various designs. Because the basic shapes of the service are always the same, it ensures peace and unity and you can go ahead in terms of designs. You do not have to purchase the service in one go. On the contrary, it is nice to always buy a few items and gradually expand your collection. Some people choose to have everything in 1 design, some mix it loose.

Marimekko designer Sami Ruotsalainen loves cooking. When he designed the new Oiva service, he was looking for the ideal plate for different dishes, the perfect cup for tea and the best cup for coffee. But he wanted to limit the number of different service items and that's why he designed the service items in such a way that they can be used in different ways and yet are also characteristic of their function.
To determine the right size, he studied the standard sizes, but he also looked at classic dishes from his grandmother's time. With all these findings he formed and determined the shape of the new Oiva service, which is unique and characteristic of Marimekko. Oiva white (off-white) is the basis and the collections differ in prints on the service. With the collections, the pattern / design is placed around the Oiva basic set.
