Alvar Aalto famously never dictated how his iconic glass vases should be used. It was his belief that the owner should decide. Perhaps it is this freedom to interpret that has helped the Alvar Aalto Collection remain both timeless and fresh. The Alvar Aalto vase set includes two clear vases at heights of 160 mm and 95 mm. It is the perfect beginning or addition to any Iittala collection.
The Aalto vase is one of the most iconic glassware pieces in modern Scandinavian design. First created in 1936, it wasn’t until the following year that it gained world recognition when it was debuted by Iittala at the 1937 Paris World’s Fair. Today, it takes a team of seven skilled craftsmen working as one to create one mouth-blown Aalto vase.
