Aalto Paris Vase 22cm Grey
The elegant 22cm vase in the Alvar Aalto Collection is a variation of similar tall vases presented at the Finnish pavilion as part of 1939 World's fair in New York. The new size and model is functional for various types of flower settings and with its soft, wave-like curves the vase allows flowers and twigs to find their place naturally. The vase is mouth-blown at the Iittala glass factory.
Alvar Aalto Collection
In 1936, Alvar Aalto’s series of glass vases won first prize in the 1936 Karhula-Iittala Glass Design Competition. Compared to the decorative objects of the time, the simple yet organic shape of this vase was a revolutionary statement. Inspired by waves (“aalto” in Finnish) in the water, the vase is a symbol of Finnish design and one of the most famous glass objects in the world.
Each in every vase in the Alvar Aalto Collection continues to be mouth blown at the Iittala factory and comes in a wide range of colors and sizes. The Collection is a staple of modern Scandinavian design and Iittala’s most iconic series. Additional items inspired by Aalto and created by Pentagon Design such as steel bowls, wooden platters and votives can also be found in the Alvar Aalto Collection.
