Iittala Alvar Aalto Collection
Vase 160mm linen
Taking inspiration from the natural beauty of his native Finland, design legend Alvar Aalto created iconic home design pieces that are functional and sculptural. In the decades since winning the 1937 Paris World Fair, Aalto’s flowing wave (“aalto” in Finnish) shape has become a timeless symbol of Scandinavian interior design. Each unique vase is first mouthblown. Then pieces are hand cut before going through several polishings at the Iittala Glass Factory. The world famous Aalto vase is a striking piece of home décor. The new linen colour adds natural sophistication to any interior. The wider size showcases fuller flower arrangements. A stunning wedding, birthday or anniversary gift.

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.
