Iittala is known around the world for its expertise as a producer of coloured glass. We have over 100 years of experience in producing this type of glass and are committed to further developing our capabilities in this area. Getting the most out of glass and developing an extensive colour palette calls for a thorough understanding of the materials used and a willingness to experiment. Colour know-how is part of the heritage of our glassworks.
Since the early days of modernism in the 1930s and 1940s, the artists working at Iittala’s glassworks have designed pieces that have challenged the skills and capabilities of the craftsmen there and the techniques they use.
