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.
The starting point for the Laakeri (bay leaf) pattern, which conveys the energy and joy of the new growing season, was a large vine. Designer Antti Kekki wanted to build a large-scale abstract pattern that divides the fabric. Laakeri was created using a paper cut technique, and its form was achieved after many experiments combining the shapes and rhythms of leaves and vines from different sketches.
