Iittala Kastehelmi

Plate 170mm dark grey

Dark grey

Legendary Finnish designer Oiva Toikka’s unique Kastehelmi collection came from Toikka’s determination to find a pattern that would hide joint marks in glass. The groundbreaking result was a distinct design featuring circles of delicate glass droplets that resemble strings of dewdrops glistening under the morning sun. Kastehelmi (“dewdrop” in Finnish) plays with light, truly bringing out the reflective beauty of the glass. Iittala’s beloved Kastehelmi collection offers a wide range of versatile, tactile pieces that are functional, delicate yet durable. The Kastehelmi 170mm plate is perfect for serving small bites, desserts and snacks. Dark grey adds elegant detail that suits any table setting. Made in Finland. Great gift. Collect a set. 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.

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.
