The iittala Essence Universal Glass feels great to hold and handle. This Finnish glass epitomizes versatility with its contemporary silhouette making it perfect for serving an assortment of drinks including water, sodas, juices and beers at any table setting. An elegant gift idea for weddings, anniversaries and housewarmings. The clear glass pairs well with all other Iittala products.
Alfredo Häberli designed the Essence Collection with a simple idea in mind - to create a series that had as pieces as possible while still being able to serve a full range of drinks and foods. Believing that simple forms enhance the enjoyment of food, Essence Finnish glassware is modern and minimal with a thin lip for sipping which is rare in lead-free glass. The stems and bases are identical which express a remarkable sense of balance when the glassware is placed side by side.

I know this is unlikely, but it seems to me that drinking water from this glass makes it look beautiful and taste better than from other glasses. I’ve always loved the simple glory of the Iittala designs, and I’m glad I brought this “extraordinary ordinary” into my daily life.
