Designed By Matti Klenell
The Unda glasses and vases have a kinship. The raised ring that symbolises a wave ties the vases and drinking glasses together as a family. It all started with the glass which Matti Klenell designed for Nationalmuseum and its restaurant NM&. The typical sleek and straight form makes the vase work as part of a group, or as an individual piece. Unda means wave in Latin. The three colours — clear glass, amber and smoky grey — go well with most flowers.

Matti Klenell’s design style is easily recognisable by its powerful ex- pression, where a decorative harmony is created through balancing bold volumes. With his glass art heritage, it’s no surprise that Matti Klenell feels powerfully drawn to the arts and crafts.
