Iittala’s 140th year anniversary includes a storied tradition of colour expertise that goes back as far as we do. That’s why it’s only fitting that to commemorate our anniversary, we’ve chosen amethyst, one of the most vibrant and most difficult colours to produce.
Amethyst is one of the rarest of our colours and one of the most demanding to produce. The special ingredients and extreme glassblowing skills it requires makes it a true gem.
Our annual colour palette consists of amethyst along with a muted dark grey that creates beautiful contrasting balance. A special 2021 edition in amethyst includes pieces from the Aalto, Essence, Frutta, Kastehelmi and Miranda collections.
Masters of colour
We are known for the rich purity of our shades. We set ourselves apart by putting the colour in the mass instead of adding it to the surface later.
