In love with Sarpaneva's 1981 Arkipelago


Arkipelago is a stunning series of glass candleholders designed by Finnish designer Timo Sarpaneva for Iittala of Finland in 1981 and no longer in production. The pieces of the Arkipelago series are now collectors items hunt all over the world. The series is made of holders of many different forms and heights, all of them are made with of many layers of glass. Each holder shows beautiful unique swirls resembling the movements under water. I believe there is not one identical to another, they are all alike. It is just beautiful. Currently we have two pairs in our store. You can find them 13cm tall here and  and the 8,5cm tall here
