Kastehelmi brings together legendary Finnish designer Oiva Toikka’s love of artistic experimentation and his passion for nature. Determined to find a way to hide joint marks in glass, Toikka created the groundbreaking raised glass droplet design that resembles strings of dewdrops glistening under the morning sun. Kastehelmi (Finnish for “dewdrop”) plays with light, bringing out the reflective beauty of the glass. Iittala’s beloved Kastehelmi collection offers a wide range of versatile pieces that are both functional and decorative. The delicate yet durable Kastehelmi cake stand is perfect for showcasing favourite desserts. Clear glass highlights the clean, elegant design. Suits any occasion. Great gift idea.
KASTEHELMI – Tertudiskur (31cm – Clear)
Kastehelmi (“dewdrop” in Finnish) draws inspiration from dewdrops glistening like a string of pearls under the morning sun and refers to the circles of delicate bubbles in the pressed glass that give each piece in the collection its distinct character. Originally designed by Oiva Toikka in 1964, the Kastehelmi series was relaunched in 2010. Toikka came up with the idea to use droplets of glass as decoration when trying to find a way to hide joint marks left in the production process. The result was a unique design that features rings of tiny glass bubbles that extend outwards from the center of each piece. The droplet enhanced the optical quality of Iittala’s glass recipe resulting in a glass that is like no other. For over fifty years, Kastehelmi has been a beloved Iittala series.
