Fluid and elegant, bold and functional, Göran Hongell's Aarne barware collection epitomizes timeless style that transcends the trends of the moment. Aarne barware quickly became the standard for essential barware in the 1950's, and it remains just as essential today. To mark Iittala’s 100th Glassware Anniversary in 1981, Aarne was brought back in production with additional glasses for champagne and whisky. In 1988, Aarne won the American Table Top Award.
Essential glasses that still serve a variety of your favorite wines. Side by side they express a remarkable sense of balance with the stem and base being of the same size. Sensually pleasing to grasp and handle, Essence makes fine wines even more enjoyable. Designed by Alfredo Häberli 2001.
Building on the popularity of his Essence collection, Alfredo Haberli has taken the simple, innovative design of his wine glasses and added curves that entice the eye and fit the hand. This refined, attractively balanced new series can still serve a full range of the wines while enhancing any table setting with a perfect blend of timeless beauty and functionality.
