iittala and issey miyake are ideal partners as both brands share similar values and design philosophies. iittala is a master of timeless design icons, whereas issey miyake is a global brand renowned for innovative clothes that go beyond fashion and trends.

 

‘the two brands have always been true to their philosophy of timeless design and creative thinking. they also value tradition, functionality, craftsmanship and the use of innovative materials and methodologies in their design work,’ says harri koskinen, design director of iittala. the simple and minimal design language of japan and finland complement each other perfectly. a shared respect for tradition and innovative materials has led the two cultures towards an increasingly similar aesthetic – one that is fully realized in the new collection.

the collection consists of napkins, placemats, ceramic cups and platters, vases and cushions. the textiles and pentagon forms of the glass and ceramic objects create a tactile sense of play, inviting you to touch and feel the material. the textile products are based on issey miyake’s original folding and pleating techniques, that have been used in his design process since the 1980s. the transformation from the flat to 3d shape of the textile products, mimic blossoming flowers, creating a moment of surprise and wonder.

 

 

the homeware collaboration will be presented at the 10 corso como store during milan design week 2016.
