Clean, classic and beautiful
By: V.B., Homeowner (Canada)
I have always coveted this carafe and it didn't disappoint. It is as beautiful as anticipated. I love the blue colour. Practically speaking, it holds more water than I thought which is a bonus. I've ordered another one because I liked it so much!

In the early years of modernism and functionalism, during the 1930s and 40s, pioneers like Alvar Aalto and Kaj Franck led the development of the Iittala brand. Their belief was that objects should always be designed with a thought, essential and above all, available to all. It was their thinking that set the foundation for the Iittala design philosophy — to push the boundaries and to give people beauty and function.
Iittala strives to create icons that will last a lifetime. What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, now celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people's everyday lives. More than just beautiful objects, Iittala creates timeless designs that will never be thrown away.View other products from Iittala
