Matti Klenell

The groundbreaking raised droplet design of Kastehelmi came from legendary Finnish designer Oiva Toikka’s search to find a way to hide joint marks in glass. Kastehelmi (Finnish for “dewdrop”) features rings of glass bubbles that resemble strings of dewdrops glistening under the morning sun. The beloved Kastehelmi collection offers a wide range of playful pieces that are both functional and decorative. Each distinct, versatile piece plays with light, bringing out the reflective beauty of the glass. The Kastehelmi tumbler is a classic example of Finnish glassware. Delicate yet durable drinkware that fits any table setting. New fresh linen brings contemporary sophistication. Available in many colours inspired by nature. Dishwasher safe.

Kastehelmi

Kastehelmi (“dewdrop” in Finnish) draws inspiration from dewdrops glistening like a string of pearls under the morning sun and refers to the circles of delicate bubbles in the pressed glass that give each piece in the collection its distinct character. Originally designed by Oiva Toikka in 1964, the Kastehelmi series was relaunched in 2010. Toikka came up with the idea to use droplets of glass as decoration when trying to find a way to hide joint marks left in the production process. The result was a unique design that features rings of tiny glass bubbles that extend outwards from the center of each piece. The droplet enhanced the optical quality of Iittala’s glass recipe resulting in a glass that is like no other. For over fifty years, Kastehelmi has been a beloved Iittala series.
