Pienet Kivet was designed by the Finnish icon Maija Isola in 1956 and it was the beginning of decades of success of the designer and Marimekko. The eye-catching pattern is still simple but highly modern.
The Pienet Kivet pattern isn’t really round, but it has some small edges, which are only recognized on the second sight. The designer Maija ISola was inspired by pebbles when she designed this pattern, since the Finnish words “Pienet Kivet” mean “small stones” in English.
The original pattern of 1956 emerged from cuts, which Maija Isola made with scissors. Her daughter Kristina downsized the pattern along the years, in order to make the textiles more powerful. The minimalistic shapes of the Marimekko Pienet Kivet bath mats still transmit strong graphical effects.
The Pienet Kivet bath mats are cosy, soft and easy to be cleaned, since they are made of 100% cotton. The Pienet Kivet bath mat from Marimekko can be washed at 60°C.
