Korento tableware collection designed for Iittala by Klaus Haapaniemi brings the magic of summer. Korento tableware collection features a lush floral theme circled by gyrating, delicate dragonflies and its main colour is a warm glowing terracotta. Korento is perfect for spicing up a summer table and can be mixed and matched with many other collections, such as the terracotta hue of the Teema series, single-colour tableware collections by Iittala as well as many other objects from Iittala. It’s up to you to decide!
The Korento collection belongs to the same series as Taika and the subsequent seasonal collection, Satumetsä, all illustrated by Klaus Haapaniemi. Awarded as Graphic Designer of the Year 2008, Klaus Haapaniemi has been defined as one of the most important rising stars in illustration and design.
"What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, today celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people’s everyday lives. We believe objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that inspires individual use and expression. As a company based in Finland, where quality, aesthetics and functionality are important values, Iittala believes in interior design that lasts a lifetime. The progressive philosophy of our design heroes, Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto, still inspires us to keep Iittala forever relevant. We don’t just create beautiful objects. We believe in timeless design that will never be thrown away".
