Samsung Electronics and Marimekko, a Finnish design house, have partnered to launch limited-edition artwork for The Frame, Samsung’s lifestyle TV.  

“Marimekko has always appreciated the beauty and joy of everyday life,” says Sanna-Kaisa Niikko, chief marketing officer, Marimekko. “We are excited to bring our bold patterns as everyday art to new audiences. In this collaboration with Samsung, we are particularly happy to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Unikko.” 

To reflect the changing seasons, users will be able to transform their TVs with three rotating collections of 12 prints. 

The partnership will offer a portfolio of art created by the following artists: 

  • Maija Isola, designer behind the Unikko flower pattern and over 500 others for Marimekko 

  • Fujiwo Ishimoto, award-winning Japanese designer who has worked with the brand since the 1970s 

  • Katsuji Wakisaka, Japanese textile designer known for his organic shapes and bold colors 

  • Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi, Finnish textile designer celebrated for her functional designs 

  • Maija Louekari, designer who combines narrative line drawings with colored surfaces 

“Samsung is proud to announce the first addition of a Finnish design house to Samsung Art Store,” says Sofia Monteiro, product manager, Samsung Art Store Europe. “Our vision with this partnership is to deliver timeless designs directly to users, allowing them to personalize their homes with a touch of Finnish creativity. We hope to continue bringing value to our appreciated users through this selection of iconic designs and tasteful prints.”
