Allas, designed for Iittala by Andreas Engesvik, is a modern take on a traditional candelabrum. Allas creates a relaxed atmosphere for friends to gather in. It provides a strong light source for the interior decoration of your home and evenings in with friends. Engesvik surprises by combining the light flames of candles and the heaviness of cast iron. Norwegian designer Andreas Engesvik’s new candelabrum innovatively combines traditional cast iron with a modern, Scandinavian shape design. Engesvik says his designs are inspired by his environment and the everyday: flea markets, people, houses, new things – everything that you notice when having a look around. The idea of Allas candelabrum was born while having dinner with friends. “I was sitting with friends enjoying a lamb roast on a dark autumn evening. The dining table was filled with an assortment of different candleholders and I was looking at the reflection their light gave off in the windows. The candles, set at different heights, created a beautiful image in the window and were a strong source of light and atmosphere. The plates on the table and the reflections of light provided the inspiration for a pool full of light.” Allas candelabrum measures 26 centimetres in diameter and is designed for six candles, each set at a different height. The look of the candelabrum changes with different candles. Various, even daring, colour combinations can be used to create an edgy, three-dimensional feel. Cast iron is a safe material for holding candles, and the three wool pads at the bottom of the pool make the candelabrum sturdy while protecting the surface of the table. Andreas Engesvik says that cast iron as a material suits Iittala’s range perfectly, although it is especially known for its glass products. “Cast iron and glass are both very old and traditional materials, each classic in their own ways. Cast iron is a functional and durable material. When combined with a Nordic shape design, the product and its design and material fit perfectly into Iittala’s product range. I am very proud to be Iittala’s first Norwegian designer.”
"Same Same But Different" is a family of three. Each glass resembles the other and contains the same volume - but at the same time they have their own personalities. Whether stacked or mingling on the same dinner table they create an interesting dynamic that adds movement to the tableware.
Uno is a candle holder designed by Andreas Engesvik that combines form and function in an understated design. The design is pure, the expression Scandinavian. As a Scandinavian, Andreas Engesvik comes from a natural tradition of minimalism and function. The Uno candle holder is an excellent example of a design that is characterised by shape, discipline and thoughtfulness. The combination of materials gives an exciting, yet unpretentious, candle holder. Uno candle holder is made for a single candle and is just as decorative alone or in groups.
Silent is about reducing a vase to it's most simple expression. It is the shape of the vase that is in focus and adds character to the vase. The serene design gives you a timeless vase - that is 100% hand made.
"The traditional parts of salt and pepper mills are split into a stack of different sized elements. The composition reflects how you grip and use the mill. The biggest element is of course the one you turn to grind your salt and pepper. The salt and pepper mills bring a good looking plus to your cooking!"
Boo carafe. Boo is like the skin, or a balloon surrounding the water with openings that tell the simple story of fluid motion in and out of the glass. The carafe exudes a strong personality, as if it's saying »I am Boo, who are you?«"
Gloria Candlestick. "Gloria is a new take on the traditional candlestick and it adds a very nice and lively atmosphere wherever you place it. It looks good with one candle, it looks nice with three and it looks great with six. it even works well with candles in different heights. The composition is up to you."
The idea behind Corky Carafe and additional drinking glasses was to work with a familiar and simple form with an oversized detail. The shape of the carafe is related to the archetype bottle - the bottle with a cork. The shape of the carafe has been given a functional character - that balances the characteristic of the ordinary. This might as well be a bottle of wine or milk bottle. The cap is large - it is easy to operate - and visible in use. The drinking glasses are meant for both wine and water - low key in their expression - for use both in everyday life and at a party.
Chunk is a series of raw and robust candleholders for regular candles. 3 different kinds of material in 3 different sizes, ready for mix, match and mismatch just as you like. Marble, wood and concrete holders with copper or brass tops. The mix of the raw base and the shiny glowing top gives the Chunk variants a rough and romantic look. As the candle burns down the light will reflect in the brass/copper top and give a beautiful glow. Perfect for dinner tables and window sills.
