Iittala has produced some stylish designs over the years – we’ve previously covered the company’s Alvar Aalto Savoy vase on these very pages. But they’re not just a company of the past, they have some impressive new designs too – including this Taika tableware range.

I think it’s fair to say these designs are very Scandinavian, with parallels to a designs produced in the area in the 50s and 60s. But it’s actually a new design by illustrator Klaus Haapaniemi. They’re certainly big and bold, with all the pieces having the feel of nature about them – birds and flowers throughout.

Whether you choose to display or use these ceramic items is up to you. They’re certainly not cheap – so you’ll not want to risk dropping them. Prices for each piece vary, with mugs coming in at 16.40 Euros, while large plates sell for 30.90 Euros. The rest falls somewhere between those two price points.
