Style Icon: Maija Isola

Design*Sponge

Easily one of the most readily identifiable patterns, Unikko was introduced in 1964 by designer Maija Isola. She actually created the print in protest against the companys founder, Armi Ratia, who said that floral patterns had no place at Marimekko. With her bright, graphic textile, Isola conceived a company standard that has been in continuous production since 1964. Today the pattern has appeared on everything from TV boxes to Nordic walking poles. Maija Isola started working for Marimekko after studying painting at the Helsinki Central School of Industrial Arts and soon became the companys principal textile designer. And while Unikko is her more recognizable print, it is certainly not her only one, during her 40 years at Marimekko, Maija Isola created over 500 prints. Are you a Marimekko fan?  -Amy psssst: The Unikko pattern was one of our Design Icons See the product links and more after the jump!
