Slideshow Unikko Poppy print design by Maija Isola for Marimekko

Easily one of the most readily identifiable patterns, Unikko was introduced in 1964 by designer Maija Isola. She actually created the print in protest against the company's founder, Armi Ratia, who said that floral patterns had no place at Marimekko.
