Have you heard of S Style & Fashion Magazine?

Inside the pages of their Summer 2014 issue, S Style explores the fresh perspective of florals in fashion and home design.

 

It’s perhaps an ironic and telling statement that the EQ3+ Marimekko Unikko Teapot made it into their botanical round-up. Having just recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary, the Unikko pattern is hardly new. Its graphic variation on nature’s poppy has been a design icon for decades (something that EQ3 Product Developer Enri touched on in this blog post on florals), and the design community continues to find new ways to bring the pattern into both their homes and their wardrobes.

 

It would seem, then, that Unikko’s newness lies in its longevity.

And, couldn’t the same be said of other design classics?

 

Furniture from Mid-Century designers such as Eames, Nelson and Noguchi have been staples in the home since Herman Miller first released them back in the 1940s and 50s. They continue to be key elements in the modern interior to this day and, as part of the EQ3+ line, we’ve found they complete EQ3’s room settings with their classic design: a Marimekko Teapot adds the perfect pop of colour to EQ3’s Basics dinnerware collection, a set of Shell Chairs complement EQ3’s clean-lined dining tables, and an Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman live happily next to one of EQ3’s Canadian-made sofas.
