iittala Aino Aalto

iittala Aino Aalto

Aino Aalto, wife of esteemed architect and glass designer Alvar Aalto, won the 1932 iittala-Karhula design competition in Finland and the gold prize at the Milan Triennale in 1936 for her functionalist glassware collection. Aino Aalto’s namesake design is iittala’s oldest product and stands for the epitome of mindmade design.

Aino Aalto’s glassware and dinnerware are the first glass products intentionally designed with everyday use in mind, yet adaptable for modern production methods. Developed in the true spirit of functionalism, Aino Aalto’s glassware is so simple and timeless in form it is no surprise it still graces tables around the world 70 years later.
