New Iittala Kuulas tableware designed by Harri Koskinen for Finnair flights
- February 11, 2022
Finnair’s completely new long-haul travel experience is complemented by new Iittala tableware designed exclusively for Finnair by Harri Koskinen, one of Finland’s best-known contemporary designers.
The new Iittala Kuulas tableware is designed for the flying experience and inspired by the modern home-like environment. The collection, designed by Harri Koskinen, includes plates, bowls, cups, tumblers, wine glasses and cutlery.
The tableware is designed for an in-flight environment and is almost 20% lighter than Finnair’s previous tableware, which supports Finnair’s weight reduction and emission targets.
The starting point for the design of the Kuulas tableware was to support the whole of the renewed travel experience: close co-operation in the design process was established with various parties, including Finnair Kitchen’s chefs. Finnair Kitchen has designed a new meal concept focusing on the very best in Nordic cuisine, with Japanese and Asian influences for the business class, and the Kuulas tableware is also available for a three-course meal in the new premium economy travel class. Close co-operation in the design process ensured that the tableware meets the needs of the kitchen and at the same time supports the desired cabin experience.
Kuulas tumblers, which are made in the Iittala Glass Factory in Finland, will also be later available for consumers to buy in Iittala’s and Finnair’s channels.
