iittala Alvar Aalto Vases

The iittala Alvar Aalto Vase is one of the most famous glass pieces in history. Showcased worldwide in museums and galleries, the iittala Alvar Aalto Vase has become an icon of timeless design. A renowned designer and architect, Alvar Aalto created the original glass vase with freeform wavy lines inspired by the undulating profiles of Finland’s archipelagos. Each iittala Alvar Aalto Vase is still crafted by its original mouth-blown process by Finland’s most skilled glassblowers at iittala. While the fluid form feels like such a natural occurrence, it takes 7 craftsmen, 12 work stages and 30 hours to create just one of these extraordinary vases. Each vase is machine etched with “ALVAR AALTO IITTALA” on the base. Available in a variety of colors and dimensions, the iittala Alvar Aalto Vase integrates into any style or palate as a consistently elegant and useful piece.

The iittala Alvar Aalto Savoy Vase was entered anonymously in the 1936 World’s Fair in Paris, and for the past eighty years it has continued to be an award-winning and lauded art piece. The nature-inspired vase fittingly bears its creator’s name, as the surname “Aalto” is Finnish for “wave”.
