KIIKARI
& KAKSOSET
COLLECTION


design Tytti Laitakari

The Kiikari (binoculars) design was inspired by the patterning of wild animals, zebras in particular. Of free-form rectangles, Tytti Laitakari created a patterned coat for an imaginary animal she had invented. 

Throughout her career, Maija Isola was both a print designer and a painter, and she often used the same motif in a painting as well as a fabric pattern. A good example is the pair of cats in the Kaksoset (twins) pattern, which appears in an almost identical form in a gouache painted by Isola.
