Radically simple drinking glasses
The Essence drinking glasses were designed with a simple basic idea in mind. Nevertheless, Alfredo Häberli wanted to serve fine wines in suitable, correct glasses with as few different glasses as possible. Inspired by the great success and outstanding design of the series, Iittala soon released more Essence glasses. Iittala's Essence collection is an excellent example of well thought-out design.
When they stand next to each other, they convey a wonderful feeling of balance. This is because the stem and foot are the same size in all glasses and the goblets have similar proportions. The Iittala glasses are easy to grasp and lie well in the hand - we suspect that they increase the enjoyment of fine beverages. To complete the pleasure, the Essence glasses are of course dishwasher-safe.
