Iittala Alvar Aalto Collection
Vase 270mm amethyst
Finnish design legend Alvar Aalto’s asymmetrical, fluid wave design for Iittala is an iconic symbol of modern Nordic interior design. Each unique Aalto vase is mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory in Finland, hand cut and then polished several times. The largest Aalto vase showcases taller flowers beautifully. Now available in amethyst special colour, a radiant new shade that transforms from blue to vibrant purple in the light. A lovely gift that comes in its own anniversary gift package.

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. Inspired by waves (“aalto” in Finnish) in the water, the vase is 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 mouth blown at the Iittala factory and comes in a wide range of colors 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.
