Iittala Alvar Aalto Collection

Alvar Aalto Collection

In 1936, Alvar Aalto’s series of glass vases won first prize in the 1936 Karhula-Iittala Glass Design Competition. Compared to the decorative objects of the time, the simple yet organic shape of this vase was a revolutionary statement. Since then, the Aalto vase has become a symbol of Finnish design and one of the most famous glass objects in the world.

Each and every vase in the Alvar Aalto Collection continues to be mouthblown 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 tealight candleholders can also be found in the Alvar Aalto Collection.

New: This autumn Alvar Aalto Collection expands with new brass-coloured Aalto candleholders. Inspired by the organic shapes of the Aalto collection, the candleholders add festive flair to your table setting and home decor.
