Iittala was founded as a glass factory in 1881 in the city of Iittala in the south of Finland. Today, Iittala is worldwide famous for its Nordic design with clear, natural shapes and is thus a forerunner of the popular Scandinavian design that leaves unnecessary ornaments behind, concentrating on clear, functional and elegant forms.

Iittala creates good design that passes the test of daily use to combat throw-away mentality.
