New Home collection by Carina Seth and Sami Ruotsalainen inspired by Hydrangeas.

This spring, Marimekko introduces a new table setting range born from the collaboration between designers Carina Seth Andersson and Sami Ruotsalainen.

The Spalje and Hortensie prints combine a graphical structure and unexpected organic forms. In these prints a beautiful and untrammeled hydrangea climbs up an architectural trellis. The idea for the prints was born at Carina Seth Andersson’s summer house. The collection includes tableware, kitchen textiles and printed fabrics carefully designed to bring long-lasting joy to our everyday moments from Monday to Sunday.

Carina designed the Basket print to imitate the rhythm of a twine basket by cutting out different shapes of paper with scissors. The black-and-white pattern complements the airier Hortensie and Spalje prints both as textiles and as tableware.

All textiles in the collection are printed in Helsinki. Playing with different pattern sketches, the design team came up with the idea of creating an entire collection of table-setting items. The floral Hortensie design was complemented by the more graphic Basket and Spalje patterns, both of which were created by the same paper cutting technique. Sami also had prototypes of colour dipped Oiva tableware in his studio for some years, waiting for the right moment. They fit perfectly in the table setting.
