The fluidity and vibrant feel of the mouth blown glass creates the delicate character for the new Iittala collectible vase Ruutu. Created by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Ruutu might be simple in shape but it takes the most skilled craftsmen in the glass factory to produce. Ruutu, which means diamond or square in Finnish, is a collection of 10 vases available in five sizes and seven colors. When collected and combined, they make small seamless installations where both the strength and the delicate nature of the glass come alive. Each vase is a simplified masterpiece taking seven craftsmen 24 hours to produce in the Iittala glass factory.
