The Timo tumbler glasses were designed by the late and great Professor Timo Sarpaneva for Design House Stockholm. He was one of Finland’s most renowned designer and artist, well known for his textile and glass work.
‘Timo was convinced that even small everyday objects can posses architectonical qualities. He collaborated during his whole career with Iittala, where he designed tableware, his cast-iron pot with wooden handle, and even Iittala’s logotype. He also worked with glass sculptures for Venini in Murano, Italy, textile design for Kinnasand and several Finnish textile manufacturers like Tempella, the extraordinary Suomi full-line dinner service for Rosenthal, and the Timo tumbler for Design House Stockholm in 1998.’
He called this “his finest glass ever”.
Made of heat-resistant glass which is 30% stronger than normal glass, shaped to fit both big and small hands, and with a slightly cone-shaped top to protect the glass in the dishwasher. The Timo tumbler is an excellent example of how form follows function. The ‘Termo’ glass has an added silicone string that protects the hand. Use it for really hot beverages like tea or coffee.
