Ittala debuts the Tanssi Collection
The Finnish design house invited Klaus Haapaniemi to bring his ornate illustrations to a new tableware collection.
Ittala debuts Tanssi – translating as dance in Finnish – a new tableware collection clad in illustrations by Finnish artist Klaus Haapaniemi.
For this new tableware line, the London-based artist returned to his designs for the Finnish National Opera production of “The Cunning Little Vixen.”
The Czech opera by Leoš Janáček tells the story of a clever vixen pursued by a hunter. Deer, badgers, foxes and of course vixens, all dressed in sophisticated attire, adorn the items in the Tanssi collection.

TThe Tanssi line includes two plates, a bowl, a mug, a coffee cup and saucer, as well as a chair cushion cover, a storage tin and paper napkins.
