50's style drinking glasses
The Aarne glasses from Iittala still look modern today, even if they come from the forties - an example of timeless design. The glass designer and artist Göran Hongell is one of the pioneers of the Finnish glass tradition.
His Aarne blown glass service for Iittala set the standard for glass design in the 1950s. The trend towards thin glass and clear forms that began at the time has continued to this day.
