Arabia's KoKo plates in new colours: lime, blueberry milk and cantaloupe.

Play of colors

Arabia's popular KoKo tableware collection celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, with the addition of three lively colors. The reintroduced lime was originally launched in 2005, whereas blueberry milk and cantaloupe are brand new hues. From the outset, the idea behind KoKo has been a relaxed ensemble: the new colors, too, are designed to fit in with other tableware. Bold shades will brighten up the Easter table and spring dining; this versatile dinnerware includes options for both breakfast and dinner.
