In the new Iittala Taika parts Klaus Haapaniemi has re-examined the animal characters. "The new parts bring the characters to the fore. I have played around with them—the fox has for example curled up into a ball." The way the pattern is incorporated onto the surfaces brings a sense of lightness to the series. "To me, the shape dictates how the pattern is used," Haapaniemi says. "I was inspired by Art Nouveau style compositions, where the pattern is in a controlled collision with the shape of the dish."
