Iittala is a Finnish company founded in 1881 by the Swede Petrus Magnus Abrahamsson for the production of blown, molded, polished, painted or etched glass. Starting from the beginning of its history, this brand has been producing glass objects trying to break the schemes through the creation of products that are not only extremely functional, but that also have strong decorative connotations. Between the ‘30s and ‘40s thanks to the valuable collaboration of designers such as Alvar Aalto, Aino Aalto and Kaj Franck, the company went through a significant development. This is thanks to the particular philosophy followed by the company and its collaborators: objects must be designed so to be available to anyone. And so, the fusion of beauty and extreme functionality makes Iittala a leading company in the sector of home decoration. According to this company, all objects must be durable and not just created to be disposable. Iittalàs table sets are extremely versatile and very pleasant to use. Each object produced by Iittala must possess three basic characteristics: shape, the quality and function. The merger of these three aspects gives life to objects that evoke real emotions but also make life easier. Each member of the company's team spends many years in enhancing the glass-blowing techniques, so that every object is unique and original, thus keeping completely artisanal the production process. Iittala focuses on the quality of its products, so that the items become timeless and durable. The collections of this brand are very different from each other, in fact the same object belonging to different lines has different designs, so that we can create a complete collection by mixing the objects. This way customers have the chance to buy items which are always fashionable and last in time.
