Marimekko Oiva Dinnerware

Sami Ruotsalainen & Maija LouekariIn late 2009, Marimekko introduced its new line of tableware. The product line was titled, “In Good Company” and featured an array of plates, bowls, mugs, cups and a tea pot. The warm, strong and clean shapes of the tableware and the unlimited ways of using the pieces inspire you to break the conventions of table setting and to mix influences from different food cultures. These dishes can be easily adapted to any use as required – according to the food served, the company, the weather, the mood… Every day, and on every occasion. The newly shaped tableware was designed by Sami Ruotsalainen. The original patterns (Siirtolapuutarha & Räsymatto) were drawn by Maija Louekari. In 2010, Marimekko added a few more classic patterns to the Oiva dinnerware collection, including Maija Isola’s Unikko design.
