Tanssi coffee cup
Enjoy your morning coffee in the lovely Tanssi coffee cup designed by Klaus Haapaniemi for Iittala. The cup is made of fine porcelain and has a pattern with a mythological story inspired by the visual designs that Klaus Haapaniemi created for the Finnish National Opera production of The Cunning Little Vixen. The Czech opera tells a sad, yet beautiful story about the coexistence of animals and humans. The colorful inhabitants of the mystical forest is a deer charming the forest with the sounds from his flute, a badger showing off in his fur coat and silk shoes, and the vixen and a fox dancing in the shadows of the trees. With a nod to Art Deco, Tanssi also pays homage to the era of the birth of the opera. Match the cup with a saucer or other pieces from the Tanssi collection for a complete look!
