Details: Ruutu, which means diamond or square in Finnish, is a collection of 10 hand-blown glass vases in five sizes and seven colours. When collected and combined, they make small seamless installations where both, the strength and the delicate nature of the glass, come alive. Designed for Iittala.

“In Ruutu, we were able to create a delicate, watercolour-like palette that intermingles with each other when combining sizes and colours. We wanted to show a sophisticated range of Iittala colours while at the same time handling the job over the user who will be able to create his own individual landscape.

We were seeking to express the purity of glass blowing in this simple diamond shape. Glass is a material that likes round shapes. When hot, it flows like honey and does not like to be pulled into a very precise geometric shape. By developing the strict shape, we are reaching the limits of the material, and using the highest level of the Iittala glass-blowing expertise.”
