Logo Tee: 1970s iittala
iittala of Finland is known for their modern glassware, having produced some of the most iconic designs of the 20th century.
The company was founded in 1881, and adopted modern styles as early as the 1930s. Famous glassware designs from the mid-century period include the Alvar Aalto's Savoy Vase, Kaj Franck's Kartio glassware, Tapio Wirkkala's Ultima Thule glassware and Timo Sarpaneva i-collection of glassware.
iittala's official i-logo, the i inside a red dot, was designed by Timo Sarpaneva for his i-series in 1956 and has been the official logo ever since.
At some point in the late 60s or early 70s iittala experimented with a new, more stylized treatment for their name to use in addition to the i-logo. It appeared on a variety of products for a short time, particularly Timo Sarpaneva's Tsaikka hot beverage glasses.
A great item for anyone interested in vintage design or graphic design!
