Alvar Aalto Collection Finlandia vase 201 mm white
Alvar Aalto 1936
Alvar Aalto famously never dictated how his iconic glass vases should be used. It was his belief that the owner should decide. Perhaps it is this freedom to interpret that has helped the Alvar Aalto Collection remain both timeless and fresh. The Alvar Aalto white glass vase is 201 mm. tall and can be filled with flowers, branches, fairly lights, or anything you can imagine.
The Aalto vase is one of the most iconic glassware pieces in modern Scandinavian design. First created in 1936, it wasn’t until the following year that it gained world recognition when it was debuted by Iittala at the 1937 Paris World’s Fair. Today, it takes a team of seven skilled craftsmen working as one to create one mouth-blown Aalto vase.
