Issey Miyake Vase by Iittala
Two masters of timeless design from two sides of the world share their vision of a home with harmony. The end result - Iittala X Issey Miyake Collection, a unique collaborative collection of high quality ceramics, glass and home textiles.
Iittala and Issey Miyake are ideal partners as both brands share similar values and design philosophies. Iittala is a master of timeless design icons, whereas Issey Miyake is a global brand renowned for innovative clothes that go beyond fashion and trends. “The two brands have always been true to their phi- losophy of timeless design and creative thinking. They also value tradition, functionality, craftsmanship and the use of innovative materials and methodologies in their design work”, says Harri Koskinen, Design Director of Iittala.
The simple and minimal design language of Japan and Finland complement each other perfectly. A shared respect for tradition and innovative materials has led the two cultures towards an increasingly similar aesthetic – one that is fully realized in the new collection.
The collection consists of 30 items. The tactile play of textiles and pentagon forms of the glass and ceramic objects is an invitation to touch and feel the material, while the colour scheme is inspired by the awakening of spring and the blossoming of flowers.
The textile products are created based on Issey Miyake’s original folding and pleating techniques that have been used in its clothes making since late 1980s. The best material to keep the folded and pleated shapes is selected, and it is also easy-care. The transformation from the flat shape to the 3D shape of the textile products suggests a blooming blossom. It creates the moment of surprise and joy.
