Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

Design pioneer Alvar Aalto took inspiration from the natural beauty of his native Finland to create the iconic asymmetrical waves (“aalto” in Finnish) that have become his creative signature from architecture to glass. A globally recognized symbol of timeless Scandinavian interior design, each unique Aalto vase is mouthblown, hand cut and then polished several times at the Iittala glass factory. Clear glass is a versatile, striking addition to any home interior. The Aalto vase’s new size is ideal for showcasing long-stemmed flowers. Makes a perfect gift.

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. 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.
