Iittala has been consistently producing its great design classics for more than 70 years. It’s not just true connoisseurs of the label who will recognise the wave-shaped Alvar Aalto vase, which is mouth-blown and is one of the most famous glass objects in the world. Today it is synonymous with Finnish glass art and the manufacturer Iittala. Thanks to years of experience, it’s no surprise that the vase stands out with its excellent finish, splendid brilliance of colour and elegantly curved lines.
The Kastehelmi glass series, for example, has been re-imagined after 20 years and its renewed success just shows the timeless design style of Iittala products. The Taika tableware also looks typically Nordic. The decoration evokes the vastness of the Finnish forests and their mythical creatures, adorning the geometrically simple cups, plates and bowls. Imaginative design meets minimalist forms, creating an exciting contrast. The Teema tableware collection, which was designed by Kaj Frank for Iittala in 1952, is much more purist. With its clear lines, it is the ideal choice for every occasion. It does away with any embellishments and yet is still an eye-catcher. You can also buy newer Iittala collections in our online shop. Tableware from the Origo series, for example, is sure to put a smile on your face in the morning with its colourful stripes. It was created by the famous designer Alfredo Häberli and has been awarded various prizes:
The Tools collection is a true marvel from Iittala. The designer Björn Dahlström knows better than any other how to combine high-quality material with outstanding design. The cooking pots, pans, sauté pans, roasters and more are therefore a real treat – for the eyes and the taste buds! The colourful vases in the Ruutu collection are graceful with a charming twist. An angular shape, rounded edges and strong colours set some wonderful accents. It was introduced in 2015 and was created by the renowned design duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. The vases are mouth-blown, so you can buy your own personal unique piece.

Iittala is the name of the village in the south of Finland where the company founder, Peter Magnus Abrahamsson – who is in fact Swedish – comes from. In 1881 he named his glass factory after this place. Initially dedicated to traditional glass art and processing, the company specialised in crystal glass in the following years. From the 1930s onwards, Iittala produced simpler and primarily ornament free glassware. At a time when the whole world was singing the praises of the industrial revolution, the Finnish company began working with Alvar and Aino Alto. Their designs, which you can still buy today at AmbienteDirect, are characterised by natural, organic shapes. They would soon go on to achieve world fame. With the Alvar Aalto Vase from 1936, Iittala reinvented Finnish glass art and, with the modern designs of the Aaltos, it went beyond the success of traditional crystal glass.
If you had to sum up the essence of the Iittala brand in a nutshell, it would probably be “Against throwawayism!”. That’s because Iittala has always focused on quality. Quality that lasts. Quality that spreads joy in everyday life. The world is starting to value durable design more and more – at Iittala it has always been a priority. What makes the company so special?
The label stands for more than Finnish glass art. Many of the home accessories made by Iittala have won awards and are in the most important design museums in the world. You can order these and other products from AmbienteDirect. There is something for every taste and budget in our range, so you can furnish your kitchen and living room with designer accessories.
