Ruutu-by-Ronan-and-Erwan-Bouroullec-for-Iittala-Yellowtrace-01French designing brothers Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, who are having something of a banner year—they were awarded the coveted Panerai London Design Medal at this year’s London Design Festival—recently introduced a new suite of glassware for venerable Finnish glass brand iittala. The collection, named Ruutu, the finish word for ‘diamond’ or ‘square,’ comprises 10 diamond-shaped vases of varying sizes and colors, all designed to fit together seamlessly in groupings. The Bouroullecs envision the vases—which are hand crafted in 5 sizes and 7 transparent tones at iittala’s glass factory in Finland—as carefully composed arrangements that create watercolor-like tableaus of overlapping colors and tones. The straight edged geometry of the Ruutu collection, which the designers specifically sought from a material naturally suited to round forms, stands in stark contrast to the organic asymmetry of iittala’s most famous vases of all, the Aalto Collection.
