The art gallery at home

Aarre, a unique collection of mouth-blown glass art.

Home is our most personal place, where we want to surround ourselves with beautiful things. Aarre (meaning Treasure in Finnish) creates new possibilities for displaying personal belongings. Things that used to be kept unseen in cupboards and boxes.

Each piece is one-of-a-kind

The Aarre wall jewels collection is a tribute to the grand old master of Finnish glass, professor Oiva Toikka. His beloved Birds by Toikka collection, and one-of-a kind career in glass art, inspired designers to create a concept for the glass art collection. All designers selected a theme they wanted to work with; Toikka mentored the designers throughout the process and challenged their imagination along the way. 

The pieces come to life in the hands of the highly skilled Iittala factory glass blowers. The collection showcases the glass-art expertise for which Iittala is so famous for.

This first Aarre collection is designed by renowned Finnish designers with whom Iittala has collaborated for a long time: Markku Salo, Anu Penttinen and Aalto+Aalto.
