The groundbreaking raised droplet design of Kastehelmi came from legendary Finnish designer Oiva Toikka’s search to find a way to hide joint marks in glass. Kastehelmi (Finnish for “dewdrop”) features rings of glass bubbles that resemble strings of dewdrops glistening under the morning sun. The beloved Kastehelmi collection offers a wide range of playful pieces that are both functional and decorative. Each distinct, versatile piece plays with light, bringing out the reflective beauty of the glass. Kastehelmi universal glass with stem is suitable for any cold drinks and ideal for everyday use both indoor and outdoor. Delicate yet sturdy drinkware that suits any table setting. Vibrant aqua brings contemporary sophistication.
