A classic celebrates its anniversary: 60 years Teema
The Teema-dishes are a classic! This status justifies not only the success which the dishes still celebrate, but also its plain elegance and versatility. Already in 1952 the design, out of which later Teema was made of, made the designer Kaj Franck to one of the most famous designers of Scandinavia.
Initially Teema was called Kilta and was produced by Arabia, where Kaj Franck was designer after the 2nd World War. After Kilta went in production in the 70es of the 20th century, Iittala started with the production of the dishes. By now Teema belongs to the bestsellers of the brand and is one of the most famous services of Scandinavia.
Simply pretty and versatile combinable
The particularity of Teema was and still is its versatility. Entitled by the manufacturer Iittala itself as "meaningful simplicity", Teema surrenders on any ornaments and decorations and is only reduced to the necessary. Circles, squares, and rectangles are the basic forms, which Kaj Franck found so irresistible, that Teema became to theme.
The colours should only be the single decorations of the dish. Everything else would deflect the object. This simplicity is the basic for another Teema characteristic: it can be combined however you like – one over another, and also beyond its borders.
Iittala offers for Teema a wide colour range. Because the shapes stay consistent, all colours can be combined with each other. Teema's simple shapes allow the combination with multiple other objects. Without any problems Teema can be combined and replenished with Origo, Kartio or the glass of Aino Aalto. There will never emerge the impression that the single parts could not fit together. With that, Teema complies with the individual wishes of everyone and leaves space for personal display. An endless number of different services is possible with a limited number of dishes.
Furthermore Teema is anti-freezing, ovenproof and microwave safe as well as dishwasher safe.
