Iittala Tumbler 33 cl 2pcs Aino Aalto
The pressed glass tumbler made a splash when design legend Aino Aalto debuted it in 1932. Since then, the drinkware has become a timeless classic of Finnish design. Inspired by ripples in the water, the Finnish glassware is space saving, stackable and versatile. Dishwasher safe and ideal for everyday.
Aino Aalto designed functionalism-inspired housewares for contemporary homes. Her approach was steeped in the Modernism architectural style which emphasised an honest use of materials and affordable mass production. One of Aalto’s most notable designs for Iittala is her pressed glassware, inspired by the circles that form when a stone is thrown into the water. First seen at a design competition held by the Karhula Glass Factory in 1932, Aalto’s Bölgeblick entry won her second place. The glassware went into production that same year and continues to prove that essential design survives the test of time. The simple space-saving form permits stacking and versatility while the timeless design still keeps the Aino Aalto series fresh eighty years later.
Aino Aalto (born Aino Mandelin-Marsio, 1894-1949) was a pioneer of Finnish design.
