For 70 years, the Savoy vase, designed by Finnish architect and furniture designer Alvar Aalto, has been one of the most famous pieces of glass in history. In 1936, Aalto anonymously entered his vase design for a competition at the Paris World’s Fair. Aalto, Finnish for “wave” created an original glass vase with wavy lines and whimsical freeform design that to many suggests the undulating profile of a Finnish lake. Aalto’s Savoy vase continues to win awards, has residency in famous museums, and is recognized and appreciated worldwide.
Each Aalto vase is still crafted by its original mouth-blown process by Finland’s most skilled glassblowers at iittala. True to Aalto’s original intent, the Aalto vase has been created in many sizes, shapes and colors. Each vase is also machine etched with "ALVAR AALTO IITTALA" on the bottom.
