The Essence line from Iittala was designed by Alfredo Häberli in 2001. Häberli’s idea was to design a glass line with as few glasses as possible for all types of wines. These simple but at the same time slightly different glasses have attracted great closure as they are hugely popular.
In the fall of 2018, a temporary production of Essence was made in color.
The Essence products are hand-blown in the Iittalaver plant in Finland.
