The Marimekko Fokus Tray Ø 46cm was created by Anna Danielsson for the Helsinki-based label Marimekko.
Since its creation in 1949, Marimekko has worked with talented artists to create designs for the home that feature bold prints and patterns. Swedish-born Anna Danielsson is an illustrator and product designer recognised for her striking and contemporary work. She finds her inspiration in art, architecture, plants and even the tattoos of different cultures.
The bold design of the Marimekko Fokus Tray Ø 46cm draws the eye and works with any décor. Its intricate black and white pattern is made up of endless small white circles on a black background, delivering an almost hypnotic effect. The diameter of 46cm and weight of 640g make it perfect for one-handed serving of drinks and food at cocktail and dinner parties. When not in use, it makes an attractive kitchen or dining room ornament. The design of the Marimekko Fokus Tray Ø 46cm is crafted from a robust mix of birch plywood and paper. This is then painted by hand and coated with a clear lacquer that is easy to wipe clean.
