Iittala Alvar Aalto Collection

Bowl 504mm stainless steel

Metal/Steel

Since winning the 1937 Paris World Fair, global design pioneer Alvar Aalto’s asymmetrical wave shape (“aalto” in Finnish) has become his creative signature from architecture to glass. Inspired by his native Finnish landscape, Pentagon Design pays homage to Aalto’s legendary waves by applying contemporary stainless steel to this iconic symbol of Scandinavian interior design. The result is a stylish piece of interior decoration that retains the organic sensuousness of the original while making a stunning impact in contemporary stainless steel. The versatile Aalto bowl makes a sleek addition to any table or home design. Ideal for serving dry foods like fruits, nuts and candies or as a gift idea.

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.

Iittala's designer Alvar Aalto

Alvar Aalto

Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) is a recognized master of modern architecture and design. Born in Kuortane, Finland, Aalto began to make his distinct mark in design shortly after receiving his architectural degree from Helsinki Polytechnic in 1921. In 1924, Aalto married fellow architect Aino Marsio, creating a lifelong partnership that built an international design legacy. During his remarkable career, Aalto designed major public institutions including concert halls, museums, universities, libraries as well as private homes throughout the world. Aalto’s furniture and houseware designs derived organically from his architectural work.
