April’s Finnish design workshop
In this workshop we will be creating an arrangement with Nordic influence.
Think clean lines, pastels cool shades and simple forms.
Complete with signature glass bowl container designed and made in Finland by IIttala, this is a workshop not only about flowers but also about taste and sustainable quality lifestyle.
Iittala date back to 1881 when a glass factory was established in a village of the same name in southern Finland. In its early years Iittala produced blown, pressed, polished, painted and etched glass according to continental models.
Finnish design pioneer Oiva Toikka was searching for a way to hide joint marks in glass when he invented the groundbreaking Kastehelmi design. Inspired by nature, Kastehelmi (Finnish for “dewdrop”) features rings of raised glass droplets that resemble strings of dewdrops glistening under the morning sun. Kastehelmi (“dewdrop” in Finnish) plays with light, bringing out the reflective beauty of the glass.
