Iittala Birds by Toikka – Capercaillie
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 took flight in 1972 with a new bird joining the flock yearly since 1996. Combining his passion for nature and blown glass art, Toikka adds unique details that give each bird its own personality. Handcrafted and mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory, each bird is a truly one of a kind art object. The collection embodies a rich fusion of glassmaking traditions and Toikka’s hands-on-approach with his team of master craftsmen. Birds by Toikka Capercaillie is a stunning iridescent mix of a jewel toned body, green wings and a golden brown beak.
