The classic Marimekko x Iittala collaboration ‘Kivi’ (meaning stone in Finnish). Designed by Heikki Orvola in 1988. Marked Marimekko on base, no mold number. The votives enrich the flame’s glow and multiplies it. Iittala glassworks` glass experts create Kivi using solid colour for the glass mass instead of merely colouring the glass from the surface which makes the colour especially rich. Kivi is available in several different colors – at the moment 47 – each with their own special Iittala glass recipe. Most of Kivi candle holders are normal, little size. In 2002-2014 there were produced also large 80 mm high Kivi votives. They are more rare, and also more valuable.
