10th anniversary of Marimekko’s Oiva tableware – Together for years to come
28 Jan 2019
In 2019, we raise a toast to Marimekko’s contemporary classic, Oiva (superb) tableware.
Oiva’s story began a decade ago, when Marimekko designer Sami Ruotsalainen was briefed to design a tableware range that would be relevant for the next 100 years, a rough number to demonstrate the kind of timelessness the design team was looking for, and that worked perfectly together with Marimekko’s bold prints.
Shortly after, designer Maija Louekari was briefed to design prints to complement the shapes of the tableware: the Siirtolapuutarha (city garden) and Räsymatto (rag rug) prints were born. The result was a functional yet playful tableware range that challenged the conventions of table setting. It encourages to combine different shapes freely and come together, around the table, with loved ones. Every day, for years to come.
To celebrate the milestone of this modern classic, Marimekko’s design team has created celebratory edition, which will be available in 2019, for limited time only.
Hints of gold, the colour of celebration, brought to the selected Oiva pieces.
