Iittala

Starting life as a glass factory in Finland in 1881, Iittala has since grown into an internationally recognised brand that combines quality, aesthetics and functionality to design essential and beautiful objects for the home. Over the years Iittala has produced a number of design classics, all of which contribute to the brand’s distinctive heritage.

Caro Communications initially worked with Iittala to launch its new collection, Iittala X Issey Miyake, a collaboration which saw two masters of timeless design from two sides of the world join together to create a home collection for everyday rituals. Consisting of ceramics, glass and home textiles, the collection plays on the shared design philosophies of the two brands, and showcases the simple and minimal design language of both Japan and Finland.
