Aatenan Aamu was designed by Kaj Franck for the Finnish company Iittala already in the year 1945. Beautiful Greece served the designer as inspiration for the ornamental glass object. When the wind moves the glass pieces, the noise reminded Kaj Franck of church bells in Athens on a Sunday morning. “Ateenan Aamu” therefore translates into "A morning in Athens."
The decoration object Ateenan Aamu brings liveliness into the house. It is stylish as soloist and also in an orchestra with more as a sort of glass curtain in front of the window, besides the chimney or in the middle of the room. The design from Ateenan Aamu dates back to 1954. The glass object then was part of the Nuutajärvi Art collection. It has already been produced from 1954-1975 and from 1992-1994.
Ateenan Aamu by Iittala consists of freely blown glass. On demand, it is available in three different versions.
