Iittala Alvar Aalto Collection

Vase 140mm clear/dark grey limited edition

Limited edition of 1000 numbered pieces. 

 

Aalto glass vase like never seen before. Iittala celebrates Alvar Aalto's 125th birthday with a limited edition of 1000 numbered pieces of the iconic Aalto glass vase in gradient grey. The limited edition vase comes in the rarer 140mm size. It is mouth-blown with a wooden mould in the Iittala Glass Factory in Finland taking seven craftspeople a total of thirty hours to produce each vase. This is the first time Iittala has used its glass colour expertise to introduce a gradient colour scheme to the Aalto vase. Darker shades of grey line the bottom of the vase and gradually become clearer towards the top. All of the vases are unique both in terms of shape details and colouring, making them an actual work of art.

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.
