What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, today celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people’s everyday lives. The cornerstones of iittala’s design are timeless aesthetics, high quality, and functionality with the belief that people should have the right to expect their design items to last a lifetime. Iittala's belief is that objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that inspires individual use and expression. In Finland, where quality, aesthetics and functionality are important values, iittala believes in interior design that lasts a lifetime. The progressive philosophy of our design heroes, Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto, still inspire us to keep iittala forever relevant.
