When Alvar Aalto made sketches for his glassware, which rose to cult status, he added a small piece of tissue paper to one of his four drawings. On it, he urged people to use their glassware in diverse ways: for example, trays, fruit bowls and vases. Forever contemporary since 1936, the Aalto vase is one of the major modern design icons from the 20th Century. The unique and abidingly contemporary form is just as fresh today as it was in 1936. 

The Savoy vase has become one of the world's most famous glass objects, deservedly synonymous with Finnish glass art and with Iittala. It is exhibited in some of the world's most important design museums.
