Aalto (wave), named after its designer Alvar Aalto, is an iconic Finnish design. It's unique wave shape and variations are a classic of modern Nordic design.
Iittala Aalto vase's unsymmetrical design is the height of elegance. Its simple form reflects the movement of water and brings flowers placed in the vase in connection with nature and the elements. The beautiful shape has been inspired by it's home country Finland, the land of a thousand lakes.
The Aalto Collection is celebrated for its functional, incredibly versatile, yet beautifully sculptural design. The vase won the Iittala design competition, and gained international fame after it won the design prize at the Paris Exposition Internationale in 1937. Aalto collection is produced by hand, individually mould-blown at the Iittala glassworks, Finland.
Iittala Aalto collection and the vase is one of Finland's most wanted gift choices.
The small Aalto bowl is both practical and versatile for serving small snacks and desserts or displaying nuts and candies.
