The Essence drinking glasses were designed by Alfredo Häberli for the Finnish designer manufacturer Iittala in 2001.
The Essence drinking glasses were designed on a simple basic idea. Alfredo Häberli wanted to serve fine wine in suitable, correct glasses, however with as few different glasses as possible. Encouraged by the great success and excellent design of the series, Iittala soon released more Essence glasses. The Essence collection by Iittala is a good example of sophisticated design.
When they stand next to each other, they give a wonderful sense of balance. This is because the stem and foot of all the glasses are the same size and the bowls have similar proportions. The Iittala glasses are easy to hold and fit the hand well, we suspect that they will increase your enjoyment of fine beverages. To complete this enjoyment, the Essence glasses are naturally dishwasher-safe.
