  • Q & A
A beautiful continuation of Finnish tradition, the iittala Aalto 20” Plywood Bowl carries the same timeless shape as the Aalto vases and trays. The birch plywood is a natural fit to the fluid shapes, unique in its grain and smooth in its lightly-lacquered finish. The shallow bowl is meant to stand on its own as art object in any interior, but is also a special way to serve dry foods like nuts, candies, crackers or bread.
  • ITEM #: II-AA365614
  • MATERIAL: Birch plywood
  • COUNTRY: Designed in Finland, Made in Romania
  • Care: Damp wipe only. After some years, the color may change due to the nature of the wood.

First founded as a glassworks company in 1881, iittala is now a leading company in modern Finnish design producing a range of dinnerware, glassware and art pieces. You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpane... More iittala

Iittala wooden tray

Beautiful! I have the metal version and this is a nice "softer" alternative. Very light color wood.

Aalto bowl
October 23, 2019
The shape is beautiful as all Aalto things are. It is very shallow (1”) and large, more like a tray than a bowl. Mine was also a little bit warped and does not lay evenly on the table. Several big fruits will keep it in place.

An iconic design
August 1, 2016
This shallow bowl is in Alvar Aalto's iconic shape that is best known in his vases. It's made of plywood in a beautiful soft golden color. The design works even when the bowl is empty. I use mine on a dark mahogany dining table. Sometimes I leave the bowl empty and other times a few pieces of colorful fruit are added. This bowl has quickly become one of my favorite and most versatile Aalto pieces.

Can this bowl be used for serving salad? What are the cleaning instructions?
1 Answer
It is meant to be used to serve dry foods - salad may contain too much water that could damage the wood if left for too long.
