Description: “The sea can take any colour because it reflects colours like a mirror. In the archipelago, the sea is blue only in summer. Often, the blueness is broken by white streaks of foam. Did you know that when I painted the seascape with the printing machine at the Tampella factory in Lapinniemi, I used water to create the waves? These fabrics are really aquarelle paintings.” Timo Sarpaneva
The original Sininen meri pattern was painted directly on the fabric with a printing machine by Timo Sarpaneva, the greatest industrial designer of our time. He and his pressmen developed the unique painting technique by chance. The method become known as the Ambiente technique. Fabrics printed with this technique became hugely popular, and they continue to be one of the best examples of 1960s design and Finnish printing expertise.
Sininen Meri cushion covers are part of Finlayson’s Ambiente home textile collection, which is based on the printed fabrics created by Timo Sarpaneva. The Ambiente home textiles are printed with the exceptionally precise digital printing technique that makes the originally vibrant colours come to life.
