Iittala’s classic Teema series is known for its beautiful colours and combinability. This spring 2019, Iittala introduces a new sophisticated neutral to the series with powder. A soft, fresh new colour that combines effortlessly in its classic Teema series. Powder is a calm, soothing shade that evokes the soft, tranquil sky of a Nordic sunset. A sophisticated and smooth companion or alternative to the pureness of white, powder combines with other colours in a clean, modern way.
`Colour is the only decoration needed,´ declared Kaj Franck.

The range initially consisted of a minimalist eight items, including plates, square serving dishes, jugs, cups, and lids. These were originally offered in white, blue, black, green, and yellow. The idea was that the items and colours could be freely combined and that people could add additional pieces as their needs grew or changed. Kilta production came to an end when Arabia ended whiteware production in 1975, by which time Franck estimated that a total of 25 million items had been produced.
