Iittala's Aalto vase is an organically shaped icon of Finnish design and glasswork designed by Alvar Aalto in 1937. The legendary shape of the Aalto vase is inspired by the Finnish landscape and lakes. The vases can be nicely combined together as a group or as a single, exclusive work of art, a joy to own or give as a gift. Each vase is mouth-blown at the Iittala glass factory in Finland.
Iittala started in 1881 as a glass factory in the town of Iittala in Finland. Iittala's design values are based on the progressive philosophy of its design pioneers. The name of Aino and Alvar Aalto has been connected to Iittala since the beginning. Alvar Aalto wanted to "free" glass from geometric form and create an impression of organic, living forms. Aino and Alvar Aalto believed that objects should be essential, beautiful, useful and democratically accessible to everyone.
