Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) is without a doubt one of the biggest names in modern architecture and design. Aalto believed that good design should be part of and complement everyday life, so he created sensible products that would capture that idea. Vases are just a few of the organic shapes created from Aalto's design philosophy. It has become a timeless symbol of Scandinavian interior design since winning the Paris World Fair in 1937.
What started out as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, today celebrates generations of essential objects made to enrich people's everyday lives. The brand defends that objects must be distinct, combinable and multifunctional, with a lasting design that inspires use and individual expression. The progressive philosophy of its designers, Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto, is what inspires Iittala to make a difference in the Scandinavian design landscape.
