Alvar Aalto created the Aalto vase for the World Fair in Paris in 1937. Available in different colours and sizes, Iittala’s Aalto vase serves a multitude of functions, ranging from more traditional usage as a vintage flower vase to a refreshed take on a sugar container. The distinctive shape of the Aalto vase originates in the Finnish landscape – specifically the beautiful natural forms of a lake. Still, to this day, each Aalto vase is mouth-blown at the Iittala glass factory in Finland. Displayed on its own or in a group of several sizes, the Aalto vase is sure to make an impact.
