MoMA Exclusive: This glass tealight holder is from the Raami tabletop collection conceived by British designer Jasper Morrison and Finnish brand Iittala. “Raami” means frame in Finnish and the collection’s low-key designs are meant to “frame” the mood of your table, putting the focus on food and fellowship. The Iittala Raami Glass Tealight Holder has an interior fluted texture that reflects the light of the small tealight or candle you place inside—and matches the Raami Iittala Glass Tumblers. The Iittala Raami Glass Tealight Holder is made of pressed glass that can be hand washed. Its designer, Jasper Morrison, has work in MoMA’s collection. Available in Seville Orange or Salmon Pink. Made and designed in Finland.
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.
