Staple of contemporary Finnish design
After launching in 1967, designer Timo Sarpaneva’s Festivo candleholder became an instant global sensation. In the decades since, it has become a staple of contemporary Finnish design. The ice-like textured surface of the glass object brings a unique, elegant detail to any home interior. The candleholders come in a variety of sizes which create a stunning display alone or grouped together. Accompanied by Kaasa candleholder, Aalto bowl and Essence pitcher in annual sea blue colour.
Lantern by Harri Koskinen started as a sculptured candleholder with a simple, streamlined design.

Recognized as a Nordic design icon, Lantern creates its own sense of space and calm with or without a candle. Reflects a soft, flickering glow that creates harmonious ambience. Clear glass complements the stunning sculptural design. A striking glass art object that makes an impact in any interior. Mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory. Made in Finland.
Finnish homes are adorned with soft, beautiful lights creating cozy ambience.

Made in Finland at the Iittala Glass Factory. Collect a set. Mix and match for stunning combinations. A great gift idea.
Swedish designer Matti Klenell’s stunning new Virva lamp by Iittala adds instant ambience.
The mouthblown glass table lamp stands on a four-legged metal base. The distinct shape is rectangular with rounded edges. The delicate glass has an embossed surface and raised, abstract pattern. A powder coated aluminum base enhances the airy, light design of the lamp. Virva is a versatile piece that can be placed in different areas throughout any interior: on a table, a windowsill or by the bed. Elegant linen, the new colour for 2020, beautifully highlights Virva’s three dimensional shape.
Leimu and Lantern by Iittala
Designer Magnus Pettersen used the inspiration of glass and concrete in modern architecture to create the Leimu table lamp. The combination of the mouth blown glass ‘shade’ and the concrete base creates a streamlined design that emphasizes the beauty of both materials. Leimu brings an elegant point of interest to any space. The Lantern lamp reflects a soft, flickering glow that creates relaxed ambience. The versatile light fixture fits easily in many places from shelves to open spaces.
Sensually pleasing to grasp and handle, Essence makes fine wines even more enjoyable.
In 2001, Alfredo Häberli designed Essence with the radically simple idea to create a series that had as few glasses as possible while still being able to serve a full range of fine wines. Believing that simple forms enhance the enjoyment of wine, Essence glassware is modern and minimal with a thin lip for sipping which is rare in lead-free glass. Essence is among the most highly acclaimed glassware in the world, and won the iF Award and Les Découvertes Award. #wineglass #design #iittala
The candleholder carries the same gentle feel of warmth and security as the lights at sea

Nappula candleholders and candelabra. Soft autumn ambiance brought by the candle light
Sturdy and sympathetic, Nappula represents the strong Nordic design language typical of Matti Klenell’s work. Nappula’s soft forms conform to the gentle flame of the candle, while its solid base and delicate stem form an interesting contrast between firm and subtle. #iittala #homedecor #interiordesign #finnishdesign #nordic #candleholder #autumn #mood #decor #moderndesign
