The Finnish designer Heikki Orvola (b. 1943) is one of the driving forces within Finnish design. He works with glass, ceramics, cast iron and textiles. The fields of industrial and product design are most familiar to him, but he has also expressed himself as an artist.
Heikki Orvola has started his career as a glass artist in Nuutajärvi, one of Iittala’s glass factories. For Iittala he designed Kivi candleholders (1988), which have become a popular collector’s item. Kivi candleholders are available in a wide range of colours and every year new colours are added. These candleholders show the designer’s thorough knowledge of glass. Heikki Orvola’s creations include also Aika dishware collection (2006) for Iittala and the 24h dishware series (1996) for Arabia, for which he has received the Design Plus Award at the Ambiente International Fair in Frankfurt. For Arabia Heikki Orvola designed also Carambola, a beautiful vase made of bone china. During his career as a designer, Heikki Orvola has received awards and prizes, including the Kaj Franck prize in 1998 and the Pro Finland Medal – two of Finland’s most important design prizes. Heikki Orvola received the title of professor in 2002. The designer’s glass and ceramics objects have been in many private and group exhibitions all over the world and his works are present in many museums worldwide.View all products

”First time shopping with Finnish Design Shop and I had a real easy, smooth experience. I had one return item and that was handled effortlessly.”
”We purchased a Hay Snowden Kettle from the Finnish Design Shop - unfortunately there was a fault with the Kettle but this was professionally and quickly dealt with by the Olli on the After Sales team, so we can recommend them for their great customer service and after-sales experience.”
”This is my fifth time shopping at Finnish design. Absolutely satisfied and happy with products and shopping experience. In looove with each item ❤️ Thank you for making my home cosy and beautiful.”
”I ordered a HAY side table that was on back order everywhere else. It was a few hundred crowns more at Finnish Design Shop, but shipped the next day and was delivered to my door two days later, which I think was worth the extra cost. It came well-packaged, protected and the item is in perfect condition. I’m happy and would shop here again.”
”Finnish Design Shop is the first place I go to furnish and decorate my newly renovated house, thanks to their beautiful, high-quality products and their excellent customer service.”

”Very good service. Unfortunately some plates were broken. Finnish design shop quickly responds and sends us new ones. That’s how service should be.”
”I’m crazy for the Finnish Design Shop, and all that I’ve bought from them. And when questions arose (regarding a bookshelf that needed clever assembly), their representatives in Finland were so helpful and thoughtful.”
”Finally a store with quality designed products available for shipment within days not weeks. Customer support is superb, great product portfolio, fast shipment.”
”Amazing products, beautiful website, speedy and secure postage worldwide... what’s not to love? Nothing cheap here, that’s for sure, but this is perfect for special treats, and there’s IKEA for the rest! ;)”
