Known for forward-thinking design and uncompromising expert craftsmanship, iittala has released what is sure to become the next icon in glass vases: the iittala Ruutu collection. Each vase is mouth-blown and hand-polished, requiring 24 hours of work from seven craftsmen. “Ruutu” means “diamond” in Finnish, and the distinctive, sharply angled vases defy the norm, offering expert glass craftsmen an incredible challenge. The resulting artwork is stunningly reflective in bright light and moody in low light. The varying heights and colors can be arranged together or individually, making the Ruutu line ideal for a collecting gradually.
