Marimekko - Juustomuotti


Series with Freehand Drawn Pattern

Juustomuotti is the name of a series by Marimekko designed by the Finnish designer Paavo Halonen. The Finnish word Juustomuotti means cheese mould. For the freehand drawing of loving patterns of lines and squares, Halonen was inspired by traditional wooden shapes used to make cheese and pas'cha, the popular Easter dessert made from curd cheese and spices. Carving patterns into wooden forms has a long tradition in Finland. Depending on the region and the season, these lovingly designed patterns, which are sometimes ornate and sometimes linear, can vary and decorates the dining table in a special way.

The range includes textiles such as pillows and tea towels, and kitchen utensils such as white stoneware cups, spoons and plates.
