Designer and artist Göran Hongell’s mouthblown drinkware collection, Aarne, helped pioneer the trend for minimalist Scandinavian glassware. It swept the gold at the 1954 Milan Triennale and then won the American Table Top Award more than thirty years later. Aarne also holds a distinguished place in contemporary design as part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The 2pc Aarne cocktail glassware set adds simple sophistication to any occasion. Each precious crystal Iittala cocktail glass is mouthblown out of clear glass. The timeless design features a substantive base, thin lip, and modern circular shape.
Göran Hongell (1902-1973) was an artist and glass designer considered one of the pioneers of Finnish glass tradition. After studying decorative painting, Hongell became the first designer hired by the Karhula-Iittala glass factory in 1932. His focus was updating traditional models in serial production. Hongell designed art objects and products for serial production all in a modern spirit. His most celebrated creation was Aarne. The collection features the first single-stage stemware glass. The innovative design earned the Gold Medal at Milan Triennale in 1954. Iittala revived the popular glassware series in 1981.
