MoMA Exclusive: Part of a tabletop collaboration between British designer Jasper Morrison and Finnish brand Iittala, these beautifully conceived, elegantly casual white porcelain dishes are meant to “frame”—that’s what “raami” means in Finnish—the mood of your table, putting the focus on food and conviviality. The Iittala Raami Porcelain Plate is available in three sizes, 6.75”, 7.75” and 10.5”, to suit your casual dining needs. Its slightly concave shape and generous, curved rim means the Iittala Raami Porcelain Plate can easily contain a hearty portion of rustic pasta or sauced meat, and its pure white color keeps service simple. The designer, Jasper Morrison, has work in MoMA’s collection. Each size is sold separately. Made in Europe and designed in Finland. Dishwasher-safe.
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.

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.
