iittala dinnerware embodies the iittala philosophy: Everyday design against throwawayism. The proof of good design is not only to please the eye, but to stand the test of everyday use.
Embodying the spirit of contemporary Nordic design, Iittala is held in high regard among designers and design enthusiasts for its fresh take on simple yet stylish dinnerware. Founded in 1881, the company helped forge a distinctive style in the 1930s and ‘40s that contributed to the larger aesthetic style of the period. Thanks to its revolutionary approach to glass, porcelain and other enduring materials, Iittala became a key contributor to now-archetypical mid-century home décor. From its famed vases and iconic glass birds comes plates, bowls and cups with the same artful sensibilities.
