Designed by artist Oiva Toikka, Kastehelmi is a glassware collection that includes everything from glasses and plates to candle holders. Inspired by nature, Kastehelmi draws inspiration from the calm morning moment when the night dew has left all the leaves full of brilliant little pearls.

The ultramarine blue shade creates a striking eye-catcher.

Since 1881, Iittala has been dedicated to inspiring better living. What began as a glass factory in a small village in Iittala, Finland has grown into an internationally known brand that has played a decisive role in defining the Nordic way of life.

Iittala’s work has always reflected the curious, innovative, and creative Nordic mindset. Iittala pushes the boundaries of design and craftsmanship with inspiration born out of the simple beauty of Nordic nature and its seasons. That’s how modern classics are made.

Iittala believes in sustainability by creating timeless products to last.

Oiva Toikka (1931-2019) is one of the great personas of Finnish glass design. His imaginative, rich and bold glass art is a departure from mainstream Nordic design. Toikka’s individual style is also evident in the utility objects he creates as they often deviate from the traditional clean-lined puritanism of Finnish design aesthetics. In addition to glass, his artistic activities cover staging, fashion design and plastic interior design elements.
