Designer: Anu Penttinen
Anu Penttinen has mastered the art of glass. She is considered a glass artist and has her own glass studio in Nuutajärvi Glass Village. She is a graduate of the University of Art and Design Helsinki, and her art reflects her fascination with bold colors and clear lines — a fascination inspired by the urban environment and their movements from place to place.
Penttinen's glass works have been shown in various exhibitions, both in Finland and abroad. Vitriini (2010), which she designed for Iittala, has been awarded both the prestigious iF Golden design award in 2012 and a Fennia Prize commendation in 2012.View other products by Anu Penttinen
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
