Alfred Häberli's essential design idea for the Essence Collection was to include as few glasses as possible, while still being able to serve a full range of wines. Häberli's family background in the hotel and restaurant business has given him a deep insight into the end user experience. Essence serves all types of wines in only four extra tall and firmly balanced glasses and the series is complemented with a compatible tumbler. All are sold in sets of 2.
Essence introduced glassware to a new, idea-oriented design: as few glasses as possible for a full range of fine wines. Side by side the wine glasses and tumbler express a remarkable sense of balance, due to the stem and base being of the same size. Sensually pleasing to grasp and handle, Essence makes fine wines even more enjoyable.
The glass used in iittala glassware is high quality and optically very clear. It resists both chemical and mechanical wear well. Dishwasher safe.

iittala creates objects that are thought through in form, function and quality. Objects with a clear thought, created to achieve long lasting everyday use and inspiration. Whether in metal, wood, porcelain or glass, Iittala design objects are tools for contemporary living.
Iittala continues to be a major driving force of Scandinavian design with legendary designers Kaj Franck (1911-1989) and Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) as the cornerstones for the brand. Iittala objects are design essentials stripped to their core; the pure union of function, form and quality that demonstrates our core philosophy of lasting everyday design against throwawayism.View other products from iittala
