Geocache Description:

Peruskätkö Iittalan lasitehtaan lähellä.

Ruotsalalinen Petrus Magnus Abrahamsson perusti Iittalan lasitehtaan vuonna 1881. Lasinpuhaltajat tulivat aluksi Ruotsissa sillä Suomessa ei ollut alan taitajia.

Vuodesta 1917 omistajana oli A. Ahlström Osakeyhtiö, joka omisti myös Karhulan lasitehtaan. Nämä muodostivat yhdessä Karhula-Iittalan lasitehtaan aina 1950-luvulle asti.

1920- 30-luvulla Iittalasta alkoi muodostua lasitaiteen ja -teollisuuden edelläkävijä. Alvar Aallon vuonna 1936 suunnittelema Aalto-maljakko sai kansainvälistä tunnustusta. Se on yhä tehtaan tunnetuin tuote.

Vuonna 2007 yritys siirtyi Fiskarsin omistukseen. Iittalan logo "i" punaisessa pallossa on Timo Sarpanevan suunnittelema.

Iittala glass factory was founded in 1881 by Swedish Petrus Magnus Abrahamsson. Glass blowers all came from Sweden at the beginning.

From 1917 onwards the factory was owned by A.Ahlstrom that also owned Karhula glass factory. Karhula-Iittala glass factory operated until the 1950s.

In the 1920s to 1930s Iittala became the pioneer of glass art and glass industry. The Aalto-vase designed by the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto in 1936 was recognized internationally. It is still the most famous product of Iittala glass factory.

From 2007 the factory has been owned by Fiskars group.

The company logo with the letter 'i' in a red ball was designed by Timo Sarpaneva - also one of the famous designers who worked for Iittala.
