With his Korento collection, Haapaniemi has combined the timelessness of Finnish design with Japanese-influenced illustrations to capture the tranquility of an enchanted meadow and the warmth of the short but sweet northern Finland summer. Korento is ideal for spring and summer dining engagements and can be easily combined with other Iittala collections to add a dash of magic to any meal.
Klaus Haapaniemi & Heikki Orvola
Iittala’s Taika series was born of two designers, Klaus Haapaniemi whose illustrations grace the forms designed by Heikki Orvola. Klaus Haapaniemi, born in Finland in 1970, is known for his fanciful designs and whimsical patterns. He is considered a "rising star" in the illustration and design world. Born in Helsinki, Finland in 1943, Heikki Orvola is a leading figure in Finnish design, having been awarded the prestigious Kaj Franck prize in 1998.
Iittala is a major driving force of Scandinavian art and design with legendary designers Kaj Franck (1911-1989) and Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) as the cornerstones for the brand. Iittala objects are design essentials stripped to their core; the pure union of function, form and quality that demonstrates our core philosophy of lasting everyday design against throwawayism.
