The first book to comprehensively document the 140-year history and influence of Finland's legendary product design brand

Iittala is a world-renowned master of Finnish design, producing objects that are as timeless and beautiful as they are essential. Here, for the first time, products and images from different decades are brought together to document the company's growth dynamically from a small glass workshop in a remote village to one of the design world's most recognisable brands. The result: a lavishly illustrated chronicle of Iittala's fabulous designs, progressive philosophies, and unique working methods.
