The exciting new collaboration between Iittala and fashion designer, Issey Miyake fusing Scandinavian and Japanese design was released last month. The collection spans 30 pieces of both textiles and glassware.

When two masters of timeless design merges in one collaboration beauty happens; One vision of a home with harmony. Iittala X Issey Miyake is a unique collection of high quality ceramics, glass and home textiles that allow you to pause and enjoy the moment in your everyday rituals. The Iittala X Issey Miyake collection brings your home a new kind of harmony by combining Scandinavian and Asian craftsmanship and ambiance.

We especially love the collection of cushions presented in four colours and three different techniques of pleating: herringbone, zigzag and random pleat. A muted Scandinavian colour scheme meets oriental origami. This vibrant set will add a lovely touch to any contemporary home.

The collection is best featured when mixed up and matched. We suspect it will be a firm favourite on Instagram.

The Iittala x Issey Miyake Vases would make the perfect gift, in classic yet edgy design. The glass vases is mouth blown in Finland in Iittala’s own glass factory and has a almost crystal shone to them.
