Oiva Toikka Mediator Dove
Oiva Toikka (b.1931) is one of the great personas of Finnish glass design. His imaginative, rich and bold glass art is a departure from mainstream Nordic design. Toikka’s individual style is also evident in the utility objects he creates as they often deviate from the traditional clean-lined puritanism of Finnish design aesthetics.
Birds by Toikka, a series designed for Iittala combines the artist’s limitless imagination with his expertise in the characteristics of glass. The unique and colorful birds, which are all handmade, have become the passion of collector’s worldwide.
As a universal symbol of peace, it’s only fitting that the Mediator Dove strikes a perfect balance between simple and harmonious design. A fine example of Iittala’s expert glassblowing, the individually handmade bird is entirely translucent, allowing onlookers a unique peek inside.
