Iittala Kivi Emerald Tealight Holder

Designed by Heikki Orvola in 1998, Ittala's Kivi tealights are like small colourful jewels of light. The colour and thickness of each votive enriches the glow as it multiplies the flickers of the flame.

The rich emerald glass Kivi has an elegant simplicity when displayed on its own, although with such a wide range of beautiful colours to choose from, you can create a combination for every season and occasion of the year.

Orvola has worked for the industrial art business, but he has also worked in a variety of different materials as a form of pure, artistic expression.

The prices of Kivi candleholders vary depending on the difficulty of manufacturing certain colours. The Kivi tealights are all handmade and each uses different pigments and techniques, the red pigments being the most complex to achieve.
