Origo took the design world by storm, the bold stripes defining the times at the turn of the millennium. Origo's long-lasting appeal lies in its combinability in both the forms and colors that work perfectly with other Iittala tableware. This 16 oz. bowl is perfect for cereal, and small soup or side portions.
Dimensions: Capacity 16 oz.
As lovely as I had always thought

Alfredo Haberli's design for the Origo dinnerware manufactured by Iittala was on my wish list. Then on a Finn Air flight I peeked into Business Class and saw that their chanterelle soup was being served in the Origo bowls. Upon returning home I searched to find the vendor who would provide the bowls at the right price (YLiving!). Donating old bowls I've had since college to my daughter in college, these Origo bowls (purchased both large and small) look stunning filled with oatmeal/soup/pistachios. Washing in dishwasher makes them super easy and I was particularly pleased to see that they "nest" very efficiently - saving cabinet space. Only negative: YLiving should use more Green packaging. Packing peanuts should be replaced entirely and shippment came in two boxes. Not necessary. Take a lesson from Mr. Haberli's efficient design and reconsider wiser/natural solutions.
Better than I thought a bowl could be

We looked for dishes with a design sense for quite a while and found it difficult to get away from the French country style that dominates the department stores. The Origo collection is perfect: fresh, colorful, sleek lines, and each dish is nicely sized. This is especially true of the dinner plates. They are large enough to give you a healthy serving, but not so large that they invite you to overeat.
Designer: Alfredo Haberli
Alfredo Häberli was born in 1964 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He studied industrial design in Switzerland. Today, he is a well-known international designer based in Zurich. In his designs, Häberli successfully combines tradition and renewal. There is joy and energy in his designs.
The human being is the starting point of Häberli's design process. His objects and structures are designed to be used. He is unprejudiced and inventive in his observation of the actual situation in which an object is used and does not create form for the sake of it.
Based on his insights, Häberli designs changes to the archetypes of objects that have developed through the times, which makes the everyday objects around people fit this time and the situation they are used in precisely.View other products by Alfredo Haberli
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
