Alfredo HaÌberli's essential design idea was to include as few glasses as possible, while still being able to serve a full range of wines. HaÌberli's family background in the hotel and restaurant business has given him a deep insight into the end user experience. Essence serves all types of wines in only four extra tall and firmly balanced glasses and the series is complemented with a compatible tumbler.
What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, today celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people's everyday lives. We believe objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that inspires individual use and expression.
