A new take on Taika, the iittala Siimes Dinnerware gives us a fresh glimpse into designer Klaus Haapaniemi's enchanting world of whimsy. Haapaniemi designed Taika (Magic) in 2009, and in celebration of the ten year anniversary comes Siimes. Meaning Shade in Finnish, Siimes refers to the place our forest friends stop to rest from the sun. Deer, wood grouses, and hedgehogs are the new characters to join the owls and foxes of the Taika collection. The brighter colors bring a spring-like feel to the table and are easily combined with other iittala Dinnerware collections like Teema. Made from vitreous porcelain, this dinner plate is microwave, oven, freezer, and dishwasher safe for convenient everyday use, despite looking like china reserved for special occasions. With Siimes, every day is an occasion worthy of a setting that tells a special story.
Care: Microwave, oven, freezer, and dishwasher safe.

The design is new, modern, refreshing and cheerful. Amazed at the wonderful design detail, feel, weight and overall product. It's designed to handle most everything, with exception to jumping back off the floor and into your hand. It might even do that too, but I wouldn't want to test it!
These are the everyday plates pro modern, unlike everything else.
