EMERALD

March 5, 2016

Color, color, color.

Iittala’s new glass color is breath-taking. A vivid green, first featured in Aalto’s collection in 1932. Has now inspired a new color of glass for Iittala’s portfolio.

Emerald is a jewel like color that gives a luxurious feel to glass. This sophisticated color has been added to several of Iittala’s collections.
