IITTALA ESSENCE WHITE WINE, SET OF 2 Designer: Alfredo Häberli for Iittala, 2001
Radically simple. Alfredo Häberli suggested a new series of glassware with
an essential idea: have as few glasses as possible, while still being able to
serve a full range of fine wines.
The Essence glasses have become a true demonstration of thoughtful
design. Standing next to each other, they create a wonderful sense of
balance. This is due to the fact that the stem and base of each glass are
the same size, while the tumblers share similar proportions. They are easy
to grasp and handle, and we suspect they make fine wines even more

IITTALA DESIGN PHILOSOPHY:
The core idea behind Iittala is to offer aesthetically and functionally durable products that bring enjoyment and pleasure to everyday life, whether it is about dining, creating a mood or storing small items at home.
All Iittala objects are thought through in form, function and quality. All aim to achieve long-lasting everyday use and inspiration. Iittala objects are designed to be combined, with different designs across series, as well as with existing home environments.
The belief of Iittala is that people have the right to expect the design they buy to last a lifetime. They see that the world is becoming more and more aware of the value of long-lasting design.
Iittala believes quality never goes out of fashion. The effort put into quality design has paid off: the Iittala collection includes not only new design but also items that have been around for more than 80 years.
