Very Nice Glasses of Iittala

By: Sanjeevkumar

Glassworks was founded in 1881. It is now one of theleading factories in Northern Europe. It produces bothglass art and household glass (Kahma, Modern). It has played a very importantrole in the development of the glass industry, starting as early as the 1930swith the previously mentioned Karhula-Iittala competitions. Aalto means wave.Therefore it is obvious that Aino Aalto, the wife of the world-famous architectand designer Alvar Aalto, got her inspiration for the glass jars from waves.The glass series “Aino" was created in 1932 and was first named “Bölgeblick"that describes the waves that a pebble thrown in the water leaves behind on thesurface. The functional and timeless simplicity of the glasses is stillup-to-date. The products of the Aino Aalto series were awarded the gold medalat the Triennale in Milan in 1936.

The Kartio glass series was created by Kaj Franck for theFinnish design manufacturer Iittala in 1958 and impresses by its constantsimplicity. "Creating the perfect glass starts with the hand that has tohold it and with questions about what that hand would prefer to hold."Attempts have been made to copy Franck by applying his rational geometry to newdesigns. These attempts have failed, because they haven’t taken into accountthe living spirit and wisdom that are required, to give thought to simplethings. Complex is rarely wise, yet it takes bravery and spirit to be simple.Elegant yet durable enough for everyday use, the Kartio range features glasses,carafes and bowls, all of which are available in several colours as well as inclear glass. Other colours are deliverable on request.

Iittala Senta is a distinctively Scandinavian stemware.Designed by Alfredo Häberli in 2004, the Stella glasses have a relaxed stylethat is easy to hold and a pleasure to use. The stem tapers gently under thebowl, creating a natural, almost sensual hollow for your finger and thumb.Picking up a Senta glass, the sensation created by this hollow will make youwonder why all wineglasses aren’t made like this. The Jars are beautiful, stackable, mouth-blown glass jars that will beautifullycomplement any room in your home. These functional and attractive jars areair-tight with a convenient plastic seal, which also makes the glass lid easyto put on and remove.
