Unikko fabric by Maija Islola. Produced by Marimekko.

Fabric designed by Maija Isola in 1964 to teach Armi Ratia, the founder of Marimekko, a lesson after she had announced in public that no floral fabrics would be produced by Marimekko. Maija Isola blatantly ignored the mission statement and created not one, but a complete collection of iconic floral patterns. Unikko is available in a large range of colours, and new colourways have been created by Maija's daughter, Kristina Isola. The UNIKKO fabrics are made from 100% cotton, and the width of the fabric is 140cm.

The Mixer by KitchenAid.


KitchenAid has spent decades creating innovative products for the well-equipped kitchen. From commercial grade cooktops and wine cellars to stand mixers and an impressive assortment of cookware, bakeware and accessories, we offer virtually every culinary essential you could need.

During this time several attachments were developed for use in mixing a variety of foods, and the KitchenAid name was also given to an electric coffee mill introduced by Hobart. In 1924 Hobart's Troy Metals subsidiary was renamed the KitchenAid Manufacturing Company, and its headquarters were set up in Dayton, Ohio.
