Iittala's delightful Nappula candleholder was designed by Matti Klenell. He drew his inspiration for the round shape from the legs of a peculiar table he saw while visiting the Nuutajärvi glass museum. Nappula is a beautiful combination of classic and contemporary design and will stand the test of time. The sturdy base ensures the candleholder stays upright.
