Iittala - Aalto Vase 220mm White by Alvar Aalto

Aalto Vase 220mm White

Design: Alvar Aalto

Inspired by nature, Alvar Aalto simplified design elements and used a craftsman’s knowledge of the material to create design that allows for various combination’s of use. The Aalto vase caused waves in 1937 when it was first presented at the Paris world exhibition.

The mysterious form made a strong statement against industrial production that failed to meet human needs. Today it is an icon of a design movement.

A shape constantly interpreted, the Alvar Aalto collection of vases, bowls and platters stays true to the original design concept. More than 70 years after the original debut, the design continues to provoke attention by letting the owner decide its use and complementing our busy lives with a touch of nature. Filled with fresh cut flowers or arranged with other collection pieces as works of art, this eternal classic is essential to the modern home.
