"Form follows function" is the famous design guideline for architects and designers. Maybe the Finnish designer Kaj Franck also designed the Teema dishes collection in the year 1952 with that phrase in mind.
Teema renounced every kind of ornamentation, called “valuable simplification” by the manufacturer Iittala itself, being only reduced to its essential. Sphere, square and rectangular are the basic forms that already fascinated the ancient Greek and which also Kaj Franck found irresistible making them the theme for Teema.
One of the most desired services of Scandinavia
Simple elegance and versatility characterize the dishes collection and make it one of the most desired ones of Scandinavia. Teema is anti-freezing, ovenproof and microwave as well as dishwasher safe. It is wonderfully combinable with other dishes, ensuring an endless series of innovative and colourful served tables.
You won’t get the “squaring of the circle”, but an undisputed classic, whose geometric shape is also viewable in many design museums all around the world.
This edition of the Teema dishes in celadon is inspired by far-eastern ceramic arts. The matt, jade green tone celadon has a huge coloured depth and symbolizes harmony.
