Iittala, founded as a glassworks in 1881, is a Finnish design brand specialising in design objects, tableware and cookware.During the past year the brand has became more known also outside of Finland and this year during the Milan Design week Iittala had a temporary inside the Janelli&Volpi shop.
In this temporary shop were present some new designs as well as some classic Iittala designs like Savoy Vase (Aalto-vase) which was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1936.
The novelty was this lamp seen in the photo above made by using a Teema-muki.I loved this idea,but at the moment Iitala doesn’t sell these lamps.

Picasso loved the Côte d’Azur in France…He lived there in different places :Antibes Juan-Les-Pins,Vallauris Golfe-Juan,Cannes and Mougins and experienced in these places many love stories, in his life and in his art…For example,in Vallauris, Picasso discovered ceramics…
These days I found a lot of images of Picasso all around in Cannes and there is a reason:there is an exhibition: ‘Picasso, les chemins du sud‘ (Paths of the South), in Cannes until the 30th of September.
E moi aussi j’aime Côte d’Azur!
