MoMA Exclusive: British designer Jasper Morrison has teamed up with the Finnish design experts at Iittala to create the Raami (Finnish for “frame”) collection, a selection of tableware made for an eclectic, 21st-century approach to setting your table. The Iittala Raami Porcelain Deep Plate has an 8.5” diameter and is a generous 2” deep—nearly as deep as a serving bowl. Use it to dish up hearty stews and soups or hold larger servings of pasta and other saucy dishes. The designer of the Iittala Raami Porcelain Deep Plate, Jasper Morrison, has work in MoMA’s collection. Made in Europe and designed in Finland. Dishwasher-safe. Available in white.
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.

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.
