Iittala is a leading international design company based in Finland. It offers a wide range of products representing the best in Scandinavian design. The heart of Iittala’s design philosophy is formulated along Kaj Franck’s early thinking. According to Franck, “objects should always be appropriate, durable and functional”.
Simplicity, a space-saving shape that permits stacking, and versatility were the starting points for the Aino Aalto glassware; ideas that have withstood the times well. This challenging design, inspired by the rings made when a stone hits the water, has kept creating new rings since its launch in 1932.
