Iittala Alvar Aalto Collection

Vase 270mm salmon pink

Salmon pink

The 270 mm high Aalto vase's organic, wave-like shape is beautifully highlighted in a delicate shade of salmon pink. The modern salmon pink colour goes beautifully with earthy tones but also adds warmth to a sleek and minimalist Scandinavian-style decor. Designed by architect Alvar Aalto in 1936, the Aalto collection is an internationally renowned classic of Finnish glass art. Each Aalto vase is hand-crafted and mouth-blown at the Iittala glassworks in Finland. This tall version of the Aalto vase is especially suitable for long-stemmed bouquets. The floral arrangement in the vase is a beautiful centrepiece in a table setting, but the vase is also a stunning decorative piece when empty. Hand wash only.

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.
