Ostindia Floris Mug in Various Sizes Design by Anna Lerinder X Caroline Slotte for Iittala

SKU: 1012352

What does an 80-year-old do who has been everywhere and done everything? Re-invent themself. So re-inventing Ostindia was the task given to Caroline Slotte in 2012. The result? Ostindia’s rebellious cousin, Ostindia Floris, patterned with dense foliage that spreads its tendrils over the porcelain like a veil. Caroline also added new items with new lines to better reflect how we dine today. Now young Ostindia Floris is already well on its way to writing its own page in Swedish design history.

Anna Lerinder is one of Sweden’s foremost porcelain designers and maybe the one that Rörstrand consults most frequently. Her Ostindia Floris, Swedish Red List and Mademoiselle Oiseau have all been widely praised for their clean lines and restrained elegance, the hallmarks of Anna Lerinder’s language of design. In 2012 Anna Lerinder was awarded the ELLE Interiör Design Prize for her work.

When Caroline Slotte began work on Floris she tried to imagine what the Ostindia pattern might have looked like if that precious piece of china had only just been discovered. Helsinki-born Caroline is a trained ceramicist whose work is represented in the collections of the Museum of Arts & Design in New York and London’s Victoria & Albert Museum
