Santtu Mustonen is a Finnish artist and designer. To celebrate the 140th anniversary of Iittala, Mustonen designed the dynamic pattern for the campaign’s visuality and the new Kartta glass sculpture collection. The internationally acclaimed artist is known for his use of vivid colors. He works with sculptures, paintings, animations, installations, and moving image. In addition to Iittala, Mustonen has worked with international names like Apple, New York City Ballet, Flow Festival, and the Oscars by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Show the essential people in your life how much you care with a gift that has meaning and will be remembered, loved and used for a lifetime. Iittala’s beloved interior and tableware objects are as timeless as the magic of the season.

6. Vintage Service

“I’m very impressed by the Iittala Vintage Service.  I have collected Wirkkala’s Niva-, Paadar-, and Aslak-drinkware from different sources over the years. With Iittala’s Vintage Service, the collections become living organisms that create new stories with different owners. Some glasses get lost over the years, and the Vintage Service is a great way to find replacements. The Vintage service is a wonderful cultural initiative and a tribute to perfectly usable objects, even if you’re not a collector.”
