The shape that moves. Looking like nothing else, the Aalto Collection laid the foundation for timeless design. Compared to the decorative objects of that time, the simple yet organic shape of this vase was a revolutionary statement when it arrived in 1936. Ever since it has become an icon of Finnish design and one of the world’s most famous glass objects. Simple yet rebellious, it’s the shape that moves.
Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) is undoubtedly one of the greatest names in modern architecture and design. Aalto believed that good design should be a part of and a complement to everyday life so he created sensible products that would capture this idea. The vases are just a few of the organic forms created from Aalto’s design philosophy.
