  • Description

    Alfredo Häberli grew up with a family that was in the restaurant business in Buenos Aires, so this Zurich-based designer under-stands the importance of getting the details of entertaining right from the very start. In 2001, Häberli created the Essence wine glass collection for Iittala which was continued 2013 with Essence Plus; each glass seems to perfectly serve its own particular function of accentuating the experience of drinking the type of wine it was designed for. The same can now be said for the new beer glass that sits in perfect harmony with its wine counterparts. With the rise in popularity of crafted and traditional beers and ales, it was time to launch a new Essence shape to accommodate this exciting new trend. The beer glass has the signature Essence stem that positions itself an elegant step above more standard beer glasses, while the vessel is designed to make pouring and drinking beer an enjoyable, sensuous experience.

  • Technical Info

    Iittala-glass is high quality, special glass, which is optically very bright. It endures chemical and mechanical wear well. Iittala glass has been specially treated to be dishwasher safe. By following the instructions below, your Iittala glasses will bring you joy for a long time. Place the glasses on the upper level of your dishwasher so that the rims do not touch during the wash. Fill the upper level of the dishwasher with other objects, so that the spurts of water do not move the glasses. Rinse milk and buttermilk glasses with cold water before placing them in the dishwasher to prevent proteins from settling on the glasses. Use short dishwashing programs and low temperatures. It is best to hand wash delicate glasses, pitchers and jugs. Do not stack warm glasses immediately after washing as they may get stuck and break. When serving hot drinks, we recommend glasses made from special heat resistant glass. Iittala glass is not oven safe nor do we recommend you put them in the microwave.
