Iittala embraces the essence of Nordic living. It is about functional yet refined aesthetics, but it’s also about a deep respect for the progressive ideas that that shape our way of life. For us, design is a human issue. It is a way of looking forward.
We are all curious. We are all pioneers. We cherish progress and never settle or cease to strive for something better. The longing for better living is an undefined feeling within us that constantly pushes us onwards. It is a way of looking forward. A hunger for better.
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.
