Maija Isola


Maija Isola (1927–2001) was a luminary in the realm of 20th-century Scandinavian design, best known for her groundbreaking work with the Finnish company Marimekko. Her bold, vibrant patterns and textiles revolutionized fabric design, with "Unikko" (1964) being her most iconic creation, a floral pattern that defied the minimalist trend of the time and became synonymous with the brand's identity.

Isola's designs are celebrated for their innovative use of color and form, making her work a staple in both modern homes and prestigious design collections worldwide.
