Iittala X Issey Miyake
The Iittala X Issey Miyake Story
While Finland and Japan are on the opposite sides of the world geographically, it turns out that they are right next door to each other when it comes to modern design. At least, that is the case shown by the recent collaboration between Iittala and Issey Miyake. The resulting Iittala X Issey Miyake Collection of glassware, ceramics and textiles shows just how in sync these masters of design really are. And it will bring that special sense of harmony to your home.
Iittala Meets Issey Miyake
“The two brands have always been true to their philosophy of timeless design and creative thinking," states Iittala Design Director, Harri Koskinen. "They also value tradition, functionality, craftsmanship and the use of innovative materials and methodologies in their design work.”
Central to the Iittala X Issey Miyake Collection is Miyake's fabric pleating, a signature element of his fashion collection since the 1980s. It is textural, geometric and, best of all, permanent. The folded fabric is complemented by a glass bud vase and porcelain tableware in soft hexagonal forms, and a specially chosen array of pinks, whites, greens and greys. The combined colors, shapes and materials are tranquil and joyful, and they bring a sense of celebration to the seemingly small rituals of everyday life.
