Design legend Alvar Aalto combined simple design with a craftsman’s expertise to create timeless pieces of home design that are functional and sculptural. Inspired by his native Finnish landscape, Aalto’s fluid waves have been an icon of Scandinavian design since winning the 1937 Paris World Fair. Each unique Aalto vase goes through a multi-step production process at the Iittala Glass Factory. The vase is mouthblown then the pieces are hand cut before going through several polishings. The world famous Iittala vase is a striking piece of home décor or a perfect gift idea. Vibrant red adds warmth to any interior. The wider size showcases fuller flower arrangements.
