We've covered Robert's remarkable renovation for some time now (see The Inside Out: Robert's Mitchell Lama Labor of Love, Micro-Inside Out: Robert's Labor of Love Continues), but we've yet to blog his love of Teema dishware. In his kitchen, on shelves built by hand, he only stocks the entire collection of Teema dishware in white...

Designed by Kaj Franck for Iittala in 1952, Teema was the result of his efforts to reduce one entire collection to its absolute essential shapes - circle, square and rectangle. Our favorite piece is the mug, which we sell in our store, but we like Robert's confidence in going for the whole collection.
