Iittala Kaasa

Tealight candleholder 141x115mm grey


Designer Ilkka Suppanen’s own love of sailing served as the inspiration for the Kaasa tealight candleholder. The vast yet gentle palette of colours found in the Kaasa collection reflect the multicoloured lights that sailors use to guide them through the choppy Finnish waters. The rounded mouthblown glass design was created to mimic a pair of hands warming themselves around a flame. While the inner base is made of polished stainless steel. The soft, beautiful light that the tealight holder reflects brings subtle ambience to any interior. Gentle grey adds elegance. A stunning wedding, birthday, anniversary or housewarming gift idea.

The Kaasa tealight candleholder is inspired by designer Ilkka Suppanen’s own experiences as an avid sailor. Drawing upon the multi-colored lights that mariners use to guide them through the challenging Finnish waterways, Kaasa comes in a rich yet gentle palette of colors aimed to recreate the same warm feeling of security similar to that of the safety lights at sea. The well-thought out details are best seen as the spark of the candle plays with the thin glass and metal base to create a soft, glowing light.
