Maija Louekari drew inspiration for the 2020 Elokuun varjot (August shadows) print from her own wildish home garden. The designer is fascinated by the changing seasons of the North – the new beginnings and the abundant growth that follows, year after year. This pattern design is an ode to greenery, freedom and warm winds.
Made from white stoneware, this flower pot features the Elokuun Varjot pattern and a saucer. Height: 10.20 cm. Diameter: 13.50 cm. Main Material: white stoneware.
It started with a dress. In the 1950s, Marimekko’s trail-blazing founder Armi Ratia created the brand’s very first pieces; a vividly printed range of liberating dresses that reflected her confident spirit. Contrary to the traditional attire of the time, Ratia’s designs embraced looser silhouettes, bold, colourful prints and a free-spirited sensibility made to empower women. This legacy still lives on today, and Marimekko’s eye-catching range of printed pieces now extends to accessories, homewares, ceramics and more. Each piece is expertly printed in the brand’s Helsinki printing factory and the Finnish company’s vibrant motifs are instantly recognisable – give a special friend or loved one a stylish surprise with a playful printed tote bag, chic mug or colourful set of notecards.
