DESIGNER: ALVAR AALTO 1936 FINLAND
In 1936, Alvar Aalto’s series of glass vases received first prize in the 1936 Karhula-Iittala Glass Competition. Compared to the decorative objects of the time, the simple yet organic shape of this vase was a revolutionary statement. Inspired by waves (“aalto” in Finnish) in the water, the vase is a symbol of Finnish design and synonymous with famous glass objects in the world.
Each in every vase in the Alvar Aalto Collection continues to be mouth-blown at the Iittala factory and comes in a wide range of colours and sizes. The Collection is a staple of modern Scandinavian design and Iittala’s most iconic series. Additional items inspired by Aalto and created by Pentagon Design such as steel bowls, wooden platters and votives can also be found in the Alvar Aalto Collection.
