Sarpaneva

…never goes out of style! Timo Sarpaneva (1926–2006) designed many, now classic, Scandi items. One favourite of mine is the cast iron pot with its mix of traditional and contemporary. The version in cast iron with enameled inside and detachable wooden handle is in production by Iittala. But how I miss the fine enameled ones of the 1960s; the red, the black, the green!
