This special edition plate celebrates the 10 year anniversary of the Marimekko Oiva collection and Siirtolapuutarha pattern. Designed by Sami Ruotsalainen, the decade-old dinnerware collection has become a staple of the Marimekko brand and design-lover's households. Its clean lines, modern form, and functional features makes it the perfect canvas for Marimekko's bold prints.
Here, that striking pattern is Maija Louekari's 2009 Siirtolapuutarha (City Garden). The modern and minimal black swirls of this print form a concentric design on the face of the plate, while the rim is a contrasting gold. This stunning, hand-painted detail gives this everyday dinnerware the beauty of more formal china. While Oiva dinnerware is loved for being microwave, oven, freezer, and dishwasher safe, these special edition pieces should only be hand washed and not used in the microwave to preserve the hand-painted gold trim.
The piece also comes with a celebratory gold sticker, which proclaims "Together for years to come:" an ode to the way meals can bring people together.
Care: Hand wash. Not suitable for use in microwave.
