A table’s awkward shape and swollen legs were designer Matti Klenell’s inspiration for Nappula’s signature silhouette. The tall, elegant stem and solid, round base combine Klenell’s love of contemporary and vintage elements. Beautiful yet practical, Nappula embodies Klenell’s Nordic design philosophy of blending function and form. The smallest Nappula candleholder makes a bold impact in polished stainless steel. The classically minimalist design combines contemporary and vintage details. A modern design classic, Nappula reflects a soft light that brings warm ambience to any interior. Looks striking alone or grouped in a collection.
Matti Klenell’s playful silhouettes for Iittala are loved by many. Nappula (Finnish for ‘button’) was surprisingly inspired by the odd, large feet of an old table he saw at the Nuutajärvi Glass Museum. Klenell incorporated the classic yet modern shape into a wide array of candleholders that all carry the soft, round forms and combines his love of vintage and contemporary details. A great gift idea.
