Vase Alvar Aalto green, 220 mm
Alvar Aalto, a Finnish design legend, combined simple design with craftsman experience to create this iconic, functional and sculptural work of home decoration.
His asymmetric flowing wave design for the Iittala brand won an award in the Paris World Fair in 1937 and became his creative signature in glass architecture, now a globally recognised symbol of modern Scandinavian interior design.
Each of his works is hand cut and then polished several times at the Iittala Glass Factory. Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) is undoubtedly one of the leading names of modern architecture and design.
Aalto believed that good design should complement and be integrated within everyday life and, therefore, created sensibly designed products that would capture that idea. The vases are just some of the organic shapes created on the basis of Aalto's design philosophy
