This is the first of Koskinen's works for Iittala.

It's an amazing candleholder standing 23 cm. tall. It iriginally came in white, clear, blue, red and two shades of green, and a couple of years ago it was reissued in clear, white, red and black.

In my opinion Koskinen is one of the most talented designers today... sort of the modern Tapio Wirkkala, and , just like him, he designs virtually anything in all sort of materials, but he's got an "innate sense" about glass.
