iittala Raami Tealight Candleholder, Seville-Orange, 3.5” $59.00
Country of Origin: Finland
Designer: Jasper Morrison
Why is it Special?
Called Raami (Frame), this new collection designed by Jasper Morisson for Iittala beautifully merges traditional tableware with modern, sleek shapes. White acts as the perfect frame for food, turning meals into culinary art. Though it carries the beautiful quality and weight of fine china suitable for five star dining, it is just as modest and comfortable in home settings. Additionally, the versatile vitro porcelain allows it to be microwave, oven, freezer, and dishwasher safe for convenient everyday dining. Each piece shares the same lip, adding detail to the silhouette and also providing a way to carry the pieces to the table and pass them around. The round and oval shapes not only brings contemporary style to the table, but allows plenty of room for gathering around a full feast, from breakfast to dinner, day to night. Raami is true to the Finnish ideals of beauty, simplicity, and functionality.
Sharing the same name and design philosophy from Jasper Morrison, the drinkware also plays with form but introduces additional texture and color. The patterned pressed glass gives the tumblers timeless style, while also providing a grip that feels fantastic in hand.
