The year 2024 marks the 60th anniversary of Unikko, one of the most recognized Marimekko print designs in the world. Iso Unikko is a stylized variation of the beloved floral created by Maija Isola in 1964. In this large-scale, minimalistic version, the Unikko pattern is represented without its details, the eyes and stems.
Unikko was created by Maija Isola in 1964 and has since become an international icon of print design. The founder of Marimekko, Armi Ratia, believed that it was not possible to faithfully capture the true essence of real flowers in print, which is why floral prints were earlier excluded from Marimekko collections. So, Maija Isola designed Unikko to be an abstraction of a flower rather than a photorealistic rendition. Today, Unikko is a powerful emblem of joy and creativity, seamlessly integrated into Marimekko´s design identity.
