Why is it Special?

The Iittala Essence decanter is part of an uncomplicated and contemporary glassware collection designed by Alfredo Häberli for Iittala. The idea behind the Essence line was to create a set that would allow for drinking a full range of fine wines with as few glasses as possible. Highly functional, each Iittala Essence glass has the same size base and stem, creating a beautifully harmonized aesthetic.

 Designer Alfredo Haberli utilized his background in the hotel and restaurant business to integrate his in-depth knowledge of wine with his own creative vision. Glasses that focus on the seductive power of a fine beverage. Extra-tall glasses rise confidently out of equally sized flat-bottomed plates in a demonstration of thoughtful design. Together the glasses stand tall, and serenely balanced. Essence has found the essential meeting points of tradition and modernity, celebration and everyday use.
