The Iittala factory was built by a lake in a Finnish village called Iittala in 1881. All essentials were close at hand. Wood, water and sand were its ingredients. Today Iittala is a leading Scandinavian design brand from Finland, trusting in objects for the home that are honest, functional and inspired by everyday life. It believes in lasting design. That’s why its designers and craftsmen create simple and timeless objects that will never be thrown away. By adapting to all our special moments and taking on our individual meanings and stories, they are forever useful.
