From egosystem to ecosystem

The third issue of the Iittala Journal is a toast to growth and the courage to question the things we take as a given.

In this issue, we travel to Greenland with photographer Tiina Itkonen to discover the changing face of its landscape and dive into Jane Withers’ musings on a new water consciousness.

We stop to think about the concept of convenience and let sculptor Man Yau’s hands turn waste glass into a one-of-akind sculpture. We pay tribute to Alfredo Häberli’s glass innovations and visit Nathalie Du Pasquier in her Milanese studio to talk about the art of arranging things. We reflect on the anatomy of sustainable flowers and share tips on small deeds that can make the biggest difference.

The ethos of this edition is about optimism and change: a quietly hopeful wish for a new direction.
