|20th century modern glass design can be summed up in one word - iittala.
Although each piece of iittala crystal strongly reflects the personal creativity
of its designer - fine minimalist form, practicality, and outstanding quality
are the hallmarks of each iittala crystal.
Iittala's design language has its roots in a cultural heritage of the scantness of days gone by, and in the impact of nature and changing seasons. As the 20th century draws to a close iittalaproducts increasingly represent timelessness, while inimitably reflecting the decade in which they were created. These great products have stood the test of time and weathered the changing trends.
|All iittala products satisfy increasingly tougher demands of production
and consumption - they respect society, the individual, and the environment.
They offer a diverse range with outstanding quality - without attempt at
the triviality of temporary fads.
Iittala continues to develop new glass products in keeping with this philosophy. You can recognize an iittala item the moment you see it - from the award winning Aalto vase, to the timeless Tapio and Aarne barware. These classics, as well as many others in the iittala collection, have shown the way for glass design this century throughout the world. We look boldly to the future to continue this design heritage.
