Description

Ice tongs by artist and glass designer Goran Höngell for iittala, Finland. Polished slim stainless steel with the iittala logo branding. The design is 1950s, but these could be any age - I was told they were bought in 1970s. Very stylish, simple, minimal. Neatly shaped, and sprung. I believe these tongs came complimentary with some designs of iittala ice buckets through the 1970s/1980s.

"Höngell set a trend for minimalist glass design in 1950s with the introduction of his Aarne glassware collection. It was awarded a gold medal at the esteemed Milan Triennale of 1954; selected as the symbol of the iittala glassworks for its 100th anniversary in 1981; and is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Aarne remains one of the most classic shapes in the world of tabletop design. The Aarne ice tongs are designed with form and function equally in mind. These handsome tongs are the proper tool for gripping the perfect amount of ice."

17.5cm long x 6cm tall x 5cm wide max. The handles are 2.3cm wide. Excellent clean shiny condition, hardly touched. An fabulous stylish item, perfect for your retro or Modernist bar or contemporary designer home...
