Iittala Aalto Vase

Add to

Drawing inspiration from the beauty of the natural world, the undulating shape of each Aalto Vase alludes to the untamed shorelines of Finland's lakes. When Alvar Aalto designed the collection for the 1937 Paris World Exposition, it confirmed his belief that good design should be sensible and made for everyday life. The timeless vessel is decidedly sculptural and is available in a range of sizes and shades—both clear and frosted. Each piece is mouth-blown in the Iittala glass factory in Finland.
