Iittala Birds by Toikka – Barn Owl
What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, today celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people’s everyday lives. Iittala believes objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that inspires individual use and expression.
The progressive philosophy of design heroes, Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto, still inspires to keep Iittala forever relevant. They believe in timeless design that will never be thrown away.
Finnish design visionary Oiva Toikka’s iconic collection of Iittala glass birds first took flight in 1972. Combining nature and Toikka’s passion for blown glass art, gives every bird its own personality making it a truly one of a kind art object. Handmade and mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory, the collection embodies a rich fusion of glassmaking traditions and Toikka’s artistic partnership with his master craftsmen. Birds by Toikka Little Barn Owl features the same vivid colours and big eyes of its larger counterpart but this petite version can fit in one’s palm.
