Iittala’s Kuru bowl is designed for neatly storing and displaying all kinds of small items like keys, sunglasses or jewellery near your front door, on the windowsill, in the bathroom or on your nightstand. The handmade, textured ceramic bowl also makes a striking serving bowl for your table setting or for snacks while you have people over.

Designed by British-Canadian Philippe Malouin, the geometric shapes of the Kuru series bring clarity and tranquility to the home. With their strong but minimalist design language, the vases and bowls of the series create harmony in your home, both individually and in unique arrangements. Their sculptural silhouettes provide a refined setting for beautiful floral arrangements and precious objects and memories.
