Collaborating with Santtu Mustonen
To commemorate our 140th anniversary, we look to the future by collaborating with exciting artists like Santtu Mustonen, who created our dynamic anniversary year pattern and is also premiering his new art glass collection Kartta with us.
Glass comes to life
The Finnish artist Santtu Mustonen’s work has always been inspired by textural materials that are translucent and optical, which lends themselves perfectly to the medium of glass. Although he’d never worked with glass prior to his work with Iittala.
Mustonen describes his experience with the master glassblowers at the Iittala Glass Factory in Finland as “powerful” because it was there that he truly got to see glass come to life. “Seeing moulds catch fire, glass shattering, it’s hot and still the outcome is something subtle and magical. Glass as a material will inspire and haunt me forever.”
