Alvar Aalto Collection Vase 160 mm flaming red
Alvar Aalto 1936
Iittala's red glass colour will be discontinued from production at the end of June 2014. At the same time the red Aalto vase will be discontinued. We will launch a new red colour, cranberry, in mid-August 2014 and will replace all current red glass items with the cranberry colour.
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. This dramatic Alvar Aalto red glass vase stands 160 mm tall and makes a beautiful addition to any room.
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.
