Drawing inspiration from the beauty of the natural world, the undulating shape of each Aalto vase alludes to the untamed shorelines of Finland's thousands of lakes. The fluid aesthetic reaffirms the deep connection between man and nature, while making a statement against the failure of industrial production to meet universal human needs. The Aalto Vase is decidedly sculptural, making it as much a striking visual accent when left empty on a tabletop or shelf as when it is filled with freshly cut flowers. Each Aalto Vase is mouthblown in the Iittala glass factory and is designed to mimic the water that it contains, creating a distinctive and artistic accent piece.
One of the 20th century’s great International Style architects, Alvar Aalto (1898–1976) is renowned for synthesizing the precepts of modernism with expressionist organic forms and natural materials. He is known for his contributions in architecture, furniture, glassware, and textiles. As Aalto is especially revered in his native Finland, one can dine, browse book titles, and see a symphony in spaces of his design—not to mention visit the architect’s former home and studio in Helsinki, Finland.
Founded in Iittala, Finland in 1881, Iittala first began as a glass factory. The company now celebrates generations of glassware objects including vases, dishes, and décor items, and maintains the tenet that objects should be distinctive, multifunctional, and enduring—both physically and aesthetically. Many renowned Scandinavian designers have designed for Iittala, including Kaj Franck, Alvar Aalto, and Oiva Toikka. Many of their most iconic designs including the Aalto Vase, Kartio glasses, and Kastehelmi dishware are still produced today.
