Aino Aalto

Aino Aalto designed functionalism-inspired housewares for contemporary homes. Her approach was steeped in the Modernism architectural style which emphasized an honest use of materials and affordable mass production. One of Aalto’s most notable designs for Iittala is her pressed glassware, inspired by the circles that form when a stone is thrown into the water. First seen at a design competition held by the Karhula Glass Factory in 1932, Aalto’s Bölgeblick entry won her second place. The glassware went into production that same year and continues to prove that essential design survives the test of time. The simple space-saving form permits stacking and versatility while the timeless design still keeps the Aino Aalto series fresh eighty years later.

Iittala's designer Aino Aalto

Aino Aalto

Aino Aalto (born Aino Mandelin-Marsio, 1894-1949) was a pioneer of Finnish design. Born in Helsinki, Finland, she received her architecture degree in 1920 from Helsinki Polytechnic. In 1924, Aino joined famed Finnish architect Alvar Aalto’s firm. That step proved fateful for Aino both professionally and personally when she soon married Alvar, creating a lifelong partnership that built an international design legacy. The couple worked closely until Aino’s death, collaborating on several projects that have left a significant mark on global design.
