Ruutu Vase One-off Collection by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Iittala
Updated: Jan 21, 2020
Created by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Ruutu might be simple in shape but it takes the most skilled craftsmen in the glass factory to produce. This collection features 14 unique vases in hand-blown glass; each Ruutu vase is unique, mouth-blown into a steel mould and polished by hand with the designer engraving on the bottom of the vase. The shape of the vases combined with the considerable sizes (from 35 to 62 cm high) challenges the material to its limits and unveils the highest level of glass-blowing expertise. These grand vases, produced in three different colors, fully expose the qualities, translucency and purity of such a living material.
