Modern dining is just as much about the fantastic food on offer, but also the social aspect of coming together around the table. This is what inspires Iittala and its latest Raami tableware collection by Jasper Morrison, designed to be loved and used every day, from morning to evening to create atmospheres around the table.
Raami â âframeâ in Finnish â is a new dining collection designed by Jasper Morrison. The carefully composed pieces in ceramic, glass and woodwork together to promote great atmosphere at the table from morning to night, on every occasion. Each item from the Raami collection is an individual, perfect on its own, yet a significant part of the entity. Like a family, or a group of friends: each member brings their own characteristics to the table.
âMaking good atmosphere is a human Instinct, which plays a part in improving the quality of our everyday lives,â says Morrison.
Raami has been designed with great attention to detail. When taking a closer look, its fine characteristics come out. The feeling of Raami is familiar, something you’ve known throughout your life. “The collection consists of a family of relatives which have varying characters according to types. Plates, bowls, glassware and various additional ‘relatives’ have different but related character, which combine on the table to provide a rich setting for breakfast, lunch and dinner,â explains Morrison.
The four looks
The collection is composed of four looks, as seen in the below lookbook.
The drinking glasses, with their fluted design, that have a surprising tactility. Light creates interesting shades as it passes through the items. The stemware
forms another look: their considered proportions combine with simple and elegant shape to reward the diner with a casual, yet sophisticated ambience that
serves one purpose â to enjoy their glass of wine. The ceramic items form the third look. Porcelain plates and bowls have a particular curved edge which ends with a subtle rim detail, that elegantly frames the dish. The wooden serving boards form the fourth look. They bring a new functionality to the collection, allowing a more casual arrangement of food and enrich it, by bringing natural warmth to the table setting.
