Simple elegance and versatility are the characteristics that make Kaj Franck’s Teema to one of the most coveted services in Scandinavia, and they also characterise the teapot. It dispenses with any ornamentation and it is in the end, reduced to the essentials. Circle, square and rectangle are the basic forms that had already fascinated the ancient Greeks and that Kaj Franck also found so irresistible that he made it a theme for Teema.
Kaj Franck initially conceived the Teema teapot to serve coffee. Although the pot with a 1 litre capacity quickly developed into a teapot, it is still ideally suited for serving coffee or other hot drinks. That is how the pot with lid closes a gap in the Teema collection from Iittala and means you can serve of hot drinks in the beloved Teema design.
