    Design by Timo Sarpaneva | Sininen meri

    “The sea can take any colour because it reflects colours like a mirror. In the archipelago, the sea is blue only in summer. Often, the blueness is broken by white streaks of foam. Did you know that when I painted the seascape with the printing machine at the Tampella factory in Lapinniemi, I used water to create the waves?  These fabrics are really aquarelle paintings.” Timo Sarpaneva
    The original Sininen meri pattern was painted directly on the fabric with a printing machine by Timo Sarpaneva, the greatest industrial designer of our time. He and his pressmen developed the unique painting technique by chance. The method become known as the Ambiente technique. Fabrics printed with this technique became hugely popular, and they continue to be one of the best examples of 1960s design and Finnish printing expertise.

    Sininen Meri cushion covers are part of Finlayson’s Ambiente home textile collection, which is based on the printed fabrics created by Timo Sarpaneva. The Ambiente home textiles are printed with the exceptionally precise digital printing technique that makes the originally vibrant colours come to life.
    Add some vibrant colour and velvety smoothness to your home with these large cushion covers. The cushion cover is made of polyester. The front is patterned, thick and soft velvet and the back is solid colour. The cushion cover has a zipper on one side. Don’t forget to order a 50x50 cm cushion that fits inside the cushion cover.

    Story of the Ambiente technique: The unique printing technique was created by chance when a paper printing machine malfunctioned at Rosenlew paper mill in Pori, splashing dye all over the sheet of paper. Timo Sarpaneva, one of the greatest industrial designers and artists of our time, was supervising the printing process and saw the mistake as an opportunity: “If something is born spontaneously, it should be studied in more detail,” he said and began exploring the technique in more detail with professional pressmen from Tampere. Later on, the technique was used in industrial production, both in paper printing and the textile and clothing industry. The seemingly random patterns were carefully controlled. “I used the massive printing machine to paint landscapes and memories on fabric,” Sarpaneva described years later.
