The Essence red wine glasses, designed by Alfredo Häberli, belong to Iittala’s Essence glass collection. The idea of the glassware collection is to simplify the wide range of wine and beer glasses into a few essential, versatile glasses. The stems and bases of the glasses are identical, creating a unique sense of balance and thoughtful functionalism. The Essence collection has won the iF Design Award and Les Découvertes Award.

”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.”
”Fast delivery. Ordered a hammock for my mothers birthday to be delivered at her adress. It’s in a somewhat rural area, but it was delivered at her door regardless. Great service.”
”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! ;)”
”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.”
