Iittala bowl but which designer?

Iittala, but I'd love to know the designer - I have seem similar-ish ones in photos by Kaj Franck and Timo Sarpeneva but it is hard to tell exactly how similar they are. This one is quite delicate amethyst glass, not thicker or heavier on the base. It measures 14cm (5 1/2") in diameter at the top and has a dimpled base.

It looks to be from the 'i-series', designed by Timo Sarpaneva in the late 1950s. It comprised a series of very thinly-blown tableware (carafes, glasses, etc).

Thank you that is great! Now that I have a search term I've been looking at i-series items at http://www.laatutavara.com and I'm definitely seeing the same colour and the same thinness. Maybe I'll be able to find the exact i series number for it. My first piece by Timo Sarpeneva!
