Tanssi (the Finnish word for ‘dance’) is a visual continuation of the magical world created by the artist Klaus Haapaniemi for Iittala. Similar to the Taika series by Haapaniemi, the products in the Tanssi collection impress with fantastical motives and colours reminiscent of a magical forest’s inhabitants.
Haapaniemi was inspired by the Czech opera ‘The Cunning Little Vixen’, which is a sad yet beautiful story about the coexistence of animals and humans and the eternal circle of life.
The Cunny Little Vixen (originally Příhody lišky Bystroušky) is an opera by Czech composer Leoš Janáček. The opera was created in the years between 1921 and 1923, based on a novella by Rudolf Těsnohlídek. The premiere was in November 1924 and the Helsinki opera performed the piece again in 2015. Who else but Klaus Haapaniemi was engaged for the visual design of the opera.
Although different from earlier patterns such as Taika, Korento or Satumetsä, Tanssi nevertheless again emphasises the striking and highly detailed style of Klaus Haapaniemi. The pattern tells its own story and enriches everyday life with cultural references and a hint of nostalgia.
The crockery in the Tanssi series present numerous combination possibilities and also go perfectly with other Iittala series, such as Teema, Taika, Essence, Kartio, Senta or even Ultima Thule. Furthermore, the individual pieces are dishwasher-safe and can even be used in the microwave.
