Description: The Unikko Ralli pattern is featured on this multipurpose tin box, which is a Marimekko classic for the home. The box opens with a hinged lid. With its organic, sympathetic blooms and architectonic stripes, the Unikko Ralli print is an inspiring fusion of two Maija Isola designs from the 1960s. Marimekko’s famous poppy pattern Unikko was born in 1964 in a time when the design house’s collections featured mostly abstract prints. Designer Maija Isola wanted to create something interesting from this organic theme and designed an entire range of floral prints. Today, the iconic flower represents creativity. The dynamic stripe pattern Ralli (rally race), created by Maija Isola in 1969, was inspired by the streamlined tapings seen on traditional racecars. In the print, sophisticated vertical color blocks constitute a well-balanced design.
Dimensions: 4" x 4" x 7".
