When Iittala lauched Tools cookware range in 1998, the response was an immense hype in media at the time. Designer Björn Dahlström was praised for the classic Scandi look, producer Iittala for the high quality. I have used the owen pan, sauteuses and casseroles for 17 years, and they´re still in very good condition. Perhaps not as shiny and bright as they once were, but still handsome. And the functionality is the same. ”We need to come away from trends and throw away consumerism,” Björn Dahlström reflects. And stresses the importance of making products with a long lifespan. In August 2015 Iittala is adding a selection of frying pans to the collection.
