    Iittala - Kaasa Fireplace
    Kaasa is a bioethanol working fireplace for the interior and exterior illumination from Iittala. The design was coined by the Finnish designer Ilkka Suppanem. Kaasa is made out of heat resistant glass and stainless steel by Iittala. Initially, Kaasa was an historical sea-sign (Baken), which stool along the Bothnia sea coast before. They were manufactured out of stone or wood and were similar to wooden piles of fireplaces before burning. Some Kaasas were sea signs for sailors, others marked good fishing areas, Sometimes there was fire set near Kaasas, to keep enemies away. At the end of the 19th century Kaasas lost their meaning and were replaced by lighthouses. Ilkka Suppanem created a new interpretation of these historical sea signs for the Finnish manufacturer Iittala. The word “Kaasa” comes from the Finnish concept “kasa” which means pile or bunch. More details: Kaasa is adapted to be used in rooms at normal temperatures (15 to 25 °C). It shouldn’t be used at places with direct sun income or near warmth sources. It has to be mounted so that no direct wind comes to it, e.g. In front of an open door or an open window. The room, where Kaasa is used in, shouldn’t have less than 25 m² of area or 60 m³ of volume and it has to be sufficiently aired. Kaasa shouldn’t be used as heater.

    Iittala - Leimu Lamp
    Leimu , „flame“ in German, spreads the reason of its name: Warm and comfortable light for your living room. The unusual chalice shape of the lampshade surprises, already before the second exciting detail comes into effect. The concrete base makes up a contrast to the weightless, transparent lampshade – a design, which connects sensibility with strength. The designer Magnus Pettersen explained about it: ”The connection of concrete and glass is famous in architecture, but not always really attractive. I wanted to create a soft combination of both opposites in a lamp, which emphasized the interplay of warm and cold elements.” The born Norwegian is known for the combination of counterparts, since his style is also called “industrial luxury”. It wasn’t easy to make a harmonic interplay of socket and lampshade regarding technique. Finally, glass is filigree and concrete massive, making it difficult to ensure a flowing mixture. Thanks to Iittala’s experience, this problem wasn’t difficult to resolve, since Iittala represents competence in glass processing without comparison.

    It is said that in 1973, while Oiva Toikka was in his study in Nuutajarvi Finland, a bird flew onto his window ledge. It was a rare bird, one he had not seen before in these parts and he began to sculpture it's image in glass. The bird amazingly came back day after day. Professor Toikka continued on to finish it's image in glass. The creation of the bird demanded great technical and artistic insight. He finished his work and just as strange as that particular bird being there, the bird disappeared and did not return. Professor Toikka has continued since then creating his birds, at least one a year since 1973. His birds are hand made and each one is unique featuring its own distinctive colour vatiations. His pieces are highly sought after as gifts and collector's pieces. Each bird is personally signed as proof of authenticity.
