MoMA Exclusive: This tabletop collaboration between British designer Jasper Morrison and the Finnish design experts at Iittala is designed for casual dining, and includes eclectic wood pieces for laid-back gatherings. “Raami” means frame in Finnish, and these low-key designs are meant to “frame” the mood of your table, putting the focus on food and conviviality. The Iittala Raami Oak Serving Tray is a beautifully grained tray of natural oak that is ideal for serving drinks, cheese and crackers, canapés or other dry foods to friends and family. With built-in, recessed handles that disappear when the tray is viewed head-on, the Iittala Raami Oak Serving Tray is easy to carry. Its food-safe oil finish is best preserved by making sure the tray is washed by hand. The designer, Jasper Morrison, has work in MoMA’s collection. Available in 12.25”, 15” or 18.5” sizes. Designed in Finland. Hand-wash only.
Why We Chose This
Considered to be one of the most accomplished product designers of his generation, Jasper Morrison—whose work is represented in MoMA’s collection—took a distinct approach when conceiving the Iittala Raami collection. “I’ve noticed that a table with unmatched, well-chosen pieces loosens the formality of a table setting and helps create a homelier and more relaxed atmosphere. Every item in the Raami collection is an equal part of the entity, perfect on its own, yet meaningful to the collection.„ Morrison's Raami designs are in keeping with MoMA's midcentury Good Design tradition of displaying and exhibiting elegantly minimal dinnerware, where form follows function.
In or Related to MoMA's Collection
The Museum of Modern Art established the world's first curatorial department devoted to architecture and design. MoMA Design Store carries a selection of design objects from that collection. We only offer authorized versions in the colors and materials selected by the original designers. MoMA's design collection is ever-changing, a reflection of the evolving field of design itself.
