Iittala Birds by Toikka

Flycatcher 95x60mm moss green-copper

Oiva Toikka is one of the greatest names in Finnish design. His iconic Birds by Toikka collection first took flight in 1972 with the creation of his small glass Flycatchers at the Nuutajärvi glass factory. Created in close collaboration with the glassblowers, the Birds by Toikka collection combined Toikka’s passion for nature and blown glass art. In 2014 the production of the series was transferred to the Iittala Glass Factory, where Toikka continued his close partnership with the team. Each glass bird is a one of a kind art object. Handcrafted and mouthblown, the collection embodies Toikka’s endless imagination. Iittala re-launches the original Flycatcher design from the 1970’s. The colourful bird features a simple, transparent body in moss green with a copper beak. Reflects light beautifully. An elegant home decoration that makes a precious gift.

Birds by Toikka

Oiva Toikka (1931-2019) is one of the greatest names in Finnish design. His iconic collection of Birds by Toikka first took flight back in 1972 at the Nuutajärvi glass factory with the creation of his small glass Flycatchers. Since then hundreds of new birds have joined the flock. The collection embodies a rich fusion of glassmaking traditions and would not have been possible without Toikka’s hands-on-approach at the glassworks and his keen understanding of each employee’s skills. Today, each glass bird is handcrafted and mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory.

Iittala's designer Oiva Toikka

Oiva Toikka

 

Oiva Toikka (1931-2019) is one of the great personas of Finnish glass design. His imaginative, rich and bold glass art is a departure from mainstream Nordic design. Toikka’s individual style is also evident in the utility objects he creates as they often deviate from the traditional clean-lined puritanism of Finnish design aesthetics. In addition to glass, his artistic activities cover staging, fashion design and plastic interior design elements.

Toikka has designed a range of home products for Iittala with his Annual Cube, Birds by Toikka, Frutta, Flora, Kastehelmi, Oiva Toikka Collection and Tundra Collections.
