  • Q & A
iittala Gaissa was designed by Finland's Tapio Wirkkala in 1973. This beautiful and classic collection of cocktail glasses has rocky bottoms and thin walls that reflect the lucid qualities of ice.Wirkkala's themes are derived from observations of nature, like ice formations and movements of water. Named after a fell covered perpetually by snow, Wirkkala's Gaissa glasses powerfully illustrate the artist's master and command of his craft and the powerful force the arctic climate serves as his inspiration.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1956 and inspired by his “i-line” range.

Bought these to add to our Gaissa old fashioned glasses,
always in use. We gently handwash in the evening, turn
upside down on a paper towel to dry overnight. Easy!
Thank you Finnstyle for always packing fragile goods with such care.

I was able to bring my collection of this lovely glass back up to a full number. I've chosen this Gaissa glass since the late 1960's.

I like these glasses very much. They have a nice design and are well made. They are in fact though, 22 cl (almost 7.5 oz) and not the 18 cl (6 oz.) listed in the description. I wonder if IIttala redesigned them and increased the size due to some costumers like Joel R feeling that they were a bit small.

The glasses are wonderful in the hand. I made a mistake by ordering the small size! I must now reorder the next size up.
The feel & aesthetic base. Too small, by my own mistake.
