Iittala Alvar Aalto Collection

Vase 140mm light lilac wood mold

Light lilac

This iconic Aalto vase is a testament to Finnish craftsmanship. Each piece is mouth-blown into a traditional wood mould. The wood mould gives the glass a lively surface and a unique finish that cannot be achieved any other way. Therefore, each light lilac Aalto vase has its unique look and personality. The Aalto vase is mouth-blown at the Iittala glass factory in Finland, and each vase takes seven artisans a total of thirty hours to make. The soft, light lilac colour breathes life into any space, perfectly complementing seasonal flowers. This 140mm vase, with its distinctive shape, is an ideal showcase for various floral arrangements, adding a playful and creative touch to your decor.

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.
