What once was a daring deviation from iittala's simple lines has become one of the most beloved dinnerware designs.
With an authentic folkloric voice, Taika (Magic) tells the story an enchanted forest full of fanciful creatures. The vivid designs are both whimsical and sophisticated in nature, showcasing Finnish designer Klaus Haapaniemi's adept attention to detail. The intricate illustrations are a perfect match for the smooth, simple shapes of Heikki Orvola's porcelain pieces. Though the stunning collection has the look and feel of fine china, it carries the convenience of daily dinnerware; each piece is freezer, microwave, oven and dishwasher safe.
Taika can create an entire place setting or be mixed and matched with other iittala collections, such as iittala Teema or iittala Kartio, to create an eclectic yet cohesive tablescape. The black variant will look striking paired with an unexpected bold hue, while the blue and white colorways have a wide spectrum of striking shades to complement in other elements of the table setting. The possibilities are seemingly endless, much like the success of this growing, globally adored design.
