Founded in 1881, Finnish company Iittala began as a glass factory with a vision to create objects which enhance the everyday. It was one of the first companies to make the transition from decorative dinner sets to functional, aesthetically pleasing objects infused with progressive Scandinavian design. The brand prides itself in creating objects that are distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that inspires individual use and expression. Still as relevant as the day it was founded, Iitalla continues to follow the philosophy of Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto; designing products that push the boundaries and give people beautiful, functional tableware which will be "treasured forever".
