Designer Matti Klenell’s playful silhouettes for Iittala are loved by many. Perhaps his most recognizable design is his beloved Nappula (Finnish for ‘button’) collection. Its signature form was surprisingly inspired by the odd, large feet of an old table Klenell saw at the Nuutajärvi Glass Museum. Klenell first incorporated the classic yet modern shape into a wide array of candleholders that all carry the soft, round forms that combine Klenell’s love of vintage and contemporary details. Now, Klenell has expanded into plant pots that showcase the same distinct Nordic design. Nappula pots have a flowing curved shape and a strong stem that is perfect for creating inspiring plant displays.
