Iittala Teema was designed by Kaj Franck in 1952, yet it remains a timeless essential for the modern home today. Derived from the three simple forms of a circle, square and rectangle, the clean lines allow it to be combined with all other iittala pieces in effortless harmony. It is functional, durable, and refined in the spirit of Scandinavian and Nordic design. From plates to platters, cup to bowls, each piece of porcelain is oven, freezer, dishwasher and microwave safe. This convenience of cooking, serving and clean-up makes it as suited to everyday dining, while its beauty makes it worthy of the most special table settings. The new color for 2019 is called "Powder," a soft tone that carries tones of peach blush but remains neutral for combining.
Care: Microwave, oven, freezer, and dishwasher safe
