Iittala Nappula

Candle holder 183mm steel

An awkwardly shaped table with ‘swollen’ feet was designer Matti Klenell’s inspiration for Nappula. Recognizing the classic form in the works of design masters like Oiva Toikka and Kaj Franck, Klenell’s interpretation resulted in Nappula’s signature silhouette. Combining the vintage and contemporary details that Klenell loves, Nappula features a tall, elegant stem standing on a solid, round base. The minimalist design is made even bolder in polished stainless steel. Reflects a soft, gentle light that creates warm ambience. A modern Nordic design classic, the Nappula candleholder looks striking alone or grouped in a collection. A perfect birthday, wedding or housewarming gift. Works with tapered candles.

Designer Matti Klenell’s playful silhouettes for Iittala are loved by many. Perhaps his most recognizable design is his beloved Nappula (Finnish for ‘button’) collection. Its signature form was surprisingly inspired by the odd, large feet of an old table Klenell saw at the Nuutajärvi Glass Museum. Klenell first incorporated the classic yet modern shape into a wide array of candleholders that all carry the soft, round forms that combine Klenell’s love of vintage and contemporary details. Now, Klenell has expanded into plant pots that showcase the same distinct Nordic design. Nappula pots have a flowing curved shape and a strong stem that is perfect for creating inspiring plant displays.

Iittala's designer Matti Klenell

Matti Klenell

Matti Klenell (b.1972) is a Swedish designer known for his continual explorations into the Nordic design philosophy of form and function. Much like craftsmen during the dawn of industrialism, Klenell seeks to obtain the richest artistic expression within the possible limitations of the production process. His goal is to bring his creations to life by giving them character and personality. His multi-faceted approach to design allows him to work within many platforms including one-man exhibitions of his art glassware. Klenell has received much recognition for his work including the Red Dot Design Award for the Lempi drinking glass that he created for Iittala. 

Klenell has designed a range of home products for Iittala with his Lempi, Nappula, Putki and Virva Collections.
