Design Caroline Slotte, 2012
Feldspar porcelain
Made by Rorstrand

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.

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. The first picture that sprang to mind was of nature run wild. "I have been careful to keep the original pattern intact, so the traditional Ostindia flowers are still very much in evidence beneath (or beside) the new design," she said at the launch. 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.

Rörstrand porcelain is dishwasher, microwave, oven and freezer safe.
