What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, today celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people’s everyday lives. Iittala believes objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that inspires individual use and expression.
The Finnish name for ‘dewdrop’ refers to the circles of bubbles in the pressed glass. Inspired by Finnish nature, the dewdrops glisten like a string of pearls on grass in the morning sun. Oiva Toikka’s love for experimentation led to the creation of an entirely new droplet design for Kastehelmi. The resulting surface structure brings out the living, reflective beauty of the glass.
2020 sees the introduction of a new colour of the year Linen. Inspiration for iitttala's new colour comes from the swaying fields of flax. This nuetral colour has depth and duality - it can be casual, but also feels sophisticated. it is a perfect pair for many other colours.
