Finnish tabletop company iittala has collaborated with Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake on a collection of ceramics, glass and home textiles that will be a MoMA Design store exclusive through May.

This marks iittala’s first inter-brand collaboration and Issey Miyake’s first home collection. Iittala X Issey Miyake is notable for its restrained, elegant forms and a color palette of forest green, pale pink and gray. The textiles designs echo the folding techniques of Issey Miyake designs, which are repeated in the expertly crafted angles of the pentagonal plates, platters and cups.

"The two brands have always been true to their philosophy of timeless design and creative thinking," said Harri Koskinen, design director of iittala. "They also value tradition, functionality, craftsmanship and the use of innovative materials and methodologies in their design work."
