Feeling Finnish

Alhtough Finnish Iittala are famous for their glassware and crockery, their new strategy is to expand into interiors for the home. With this in mind this year has seen the launch of a series of new products  including this contrasting concrete and glass Leimu lamp by up and coming Norwegian but London-based designer Magnus Pettersen  . These modular plywood Vakka boxes (second below) are also another product from their push into homewares . Concrete is a hot material in home accessories design at the moment and was everywhere at September’s Maison Objet in Paris.
