Lempi Glass by Matti Klenell

Swedish designer Matti Klenell designed a new every occasion glass for Finnish Iittala called “Lempi”.

Lempi means ‘favourite’ in Finnish, and Lempi was created for any occasion, informal or spectacular, from wine to milk, and it is perfect for modern living spaces as this stackable stemware offers generous servings without taking up too much space in a small kitchen.

I love the concept of Lempi – its ultimate idea is to be the only glass you need to buy and it will be stackable so you can fit a collection of them easily in your kitchen cabinet. Strong enough for everyday use, but elegant enough for special occasions, Lempi is for sure to be “favorite” for many.

    I really love these. Practical but elegant, so Scandinavian! Will keep these in mind. Bob’s supposedly making a set of cut wine bottle glasses for us.
