A departure from iittala's flagship products which offer clean lines and subtle elegance, the Taika collection is bold and whimsical. Finnish for magic, Taika can create an entire place setting, or can be mixed with many of iittala’s other collections as an accent. The beautiful Taika print was created by Finnish-born designer, Klaus Haapaniemi in 2007. A rising design star, his prints are intricate, expressive and most of all in high demand. His illustrations have been featured in books, newspapers, on garment prints and shown in exhibitions.
|Fanciful characters and exceptional natural elements make up the basis of design for Taika. The energetic design features a stream of mythical creatures as well as fascinating and meticulous detail. A gamut of deep reds and blues creates a grand and majestic look.|
Set amid either the iittala white or blue backdrop, this collection can easily be combined with other series in the iittala line such as Aika, adding just a pinch of Taika as a nice accent.
