Colourful Taika Series
The colourful style of the Taika -series will probably surprise those for whom Iittala is the epitome of traditional Nordic functionality and simple design: the tableware series Taika of the Finnish manufacturer awakens memories that seemed to have been forgotten long ago.
The decorative pattern for the Iittala service collection was created by design newcomer Klaus Haapaniemi. Originally, the pattern was intended to decorate Heikki Orvola's Aika series, but they were so impressed by the result that they decided to create a new tableware series.
And in fact. Taika different: When I was little, I always liked to watch the little mole of the Czech illustrator Zdeněk Miler and many other Eastern European and Russian animation films. I still like this handmade style of these animations , says designer Klaus Haapaniemi. In the pattern of the Taika -series, just that handmade, folkloric style is clearly noticeable.
Taika offers a completely new facet to the previous Iittala assortment, but still takes into account the mix & match principle, which is known for Iittala and stands for complete freedom of combination of all Iittala products. The Taika -Dishes are made of high-quality porcelain and are suitable for microwaves, as well as being freeze-proof, oven- and dishwasher-safe.
