A Mini Marimekko DIY – Kaiku Inspired Sauna

Finnish for Echo, the Kaiku print was designed by Maija Louekari in 2005 and has been one of the more popular prints for Marimekko since. Used often for cabin décor, and for bringing a bit of the outdoors in—this calming pattern was recently used in a big way for a school project of an AlwaysMod enthusiast.

Using Kaiku Lunch Napkins as a base for inspiration, mini-Marimekko fan Arianna got to work creating a Finnish sauna for a school project (with a little help from Mom). Complete with working switch for the sauna “heat”, a bench, and bucket for water, lush grass atop the roof, and a calming Kaiku view – this little sauna puts many full-sized ones to shame.
