140-year-old Finnish glassware, tableware, interior decoration and cookware company Iittala believes in creating distinctive, multi-functional and lasting designs that are at once expressive and inspirational. These qualities are evident in their range of products carried by RoyalDesign.
Perhaps the best-known product in Iittala’s catalogue is the Alvar Aalto vase. Designed by Alvar Aalto, the mouth-blown vase first gained international recognition at the 1937 Paris World Exposition. Over eight decades since, the iconic vase is still being made at the Iittala glass company.
