"Kuusama" Marimekko Round Tray, Plywood, Color 330. Fuchsia, Red. Design: Tanja Orsjoki. Finland
Tanja Orsjoki is a young promising designer with a lot of talent. Her vibrant Marimekko floral pattern "Kuusama" was a Master's degree project at the University of Art and Design in Helsinki. Her own yard and nature gave her inspiration for this delicate floral composition, and photographs and direct scans of living plants were used to accomplish the pleasing design. The orange-red honeysuckle blossoms with mauve leaves outlined in black with orange stems stand out beautifully against the fuchsia red background. This is a very beautiful laminated plywood tray! 18 in diam (46 cm). See also our matching "Kuusama" tablecloth, pillow sham and fabric. Finland.
