Called Raami (Frame), this new collection designed by Jasper Morrison for iittala beautifully merges traditional tableware with modern, sleek shapes. Shaped to be suitable for maximum enjoyment of all sparkling wines like champagne and prosecco, this set of two glasses is an essential for entertaining. It also makes a wonderful housewarming or engagement gift. It feels elegant and delicate in hand, but is machine-blown from durable, high-quality glass to last - so you can cheers for years to come.
First founded as a glassworks company in 1881, iittala is now a leading company in modern Finnish design producing a range of dinnerware, glassware and art pieces. You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpane... More iittala
I chose the Raami collection of wine glasses for their simplicity and stature. My dinnerware sets are heavier, think Fiesta, Waechtersbach and Arabia, so I didn’t want tall, tippy and overly delicate wine glasses. Raami are shorter, less tippy with their flatter base; a lovely combination of practical form and function.
The shorter stems, flat bases and practically-sized bowls make for less spills and breakage. I am so over ostentatious and impractical stemware.
