Nappula glass, Iittala, 2018

The original Nappula candle holder is made in metal and was launched for Iittala in 2012.
Recent years we have looked for ways to expand the popular family in new directions and to include new materials. To use glass was a thought I had already from the beginning but it was hard to implement if being too rigid in how you transfer the design language in to different materials. But instead we have worked on Nappula as an over all theme of vessels for candles that are more loose related rather than being twins and that has been both inspiring and vitalizing. The glass objects in the series playfully bare traces of the original Nappula just as well as other projects I have made in glass.
