Working with a roster of prominent industrial designers and architects such as Alvar Aalto, Renzo Piano, and Tapio Wirkkala, iittala produces glassware and tabletop pieces that are functional works of art. What began in 1881 as a glass factory in the small Finnish village of iittala is today a leading homeware design company. The brand is known for its iconic contemporary designs, including the world-renowned Aalto vase, Marimekko's Kivi votives, and Oiva Toikka's glass birds.
It’s easy to see why Finland is hailed as a beacon of design when admiring the tabletop accessories from Iittala. The two-tone Aalto vases, Point flatware and iconic striped Origo collection are perfectly modern, while the animal-inspired cups, bowls and plates from the Taika and Satumetsa lines feel like folk tales. Oiva Toikka’s colorful contemporary bird statues reveal exquisite glass craftsmanship, calling to mind the company’s humble beginnings as a glass factory in the small village of Iittala.

We haven’t held back here; this is your invitation to go a little (or very) out of the box, with everything from horse sculptures to gold-plated skulls. Go for it — conformity is overrated.
