MoMA Exclusive: Part of a tabletop collaboration between British designer Jasper Morrison and Finnish brand Iittala, this beautifully conceived, elegantly casual white porcelain cup and saucer set is ideal for an impromptu tea service in your living room or coffee during an al fresco brunch. The concept of the Raami collection is to “frame” the mood of your table, putting the focus on the joys of get-togethers and conversation. (“Raami” means frame in Finnish.) The Iittala Raami Porcelain Cup has a 9oz capacity, and its companion saucer, included, has a 6” diameter. The designer of the Iittala Raami Porcelain Cup and Saucer, Jasper Morrison, has work in MoMA’s collection. 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.
