A soft-spoken hue, iittala presents Salmon Pink as the new colorway for spring's 2013 collection of Aalto Vases. Better described as a glow than a bold coloring, the new pink hue perfectly accents the gently curving shape of the vase. Inspired by the Finnish coastline, designer Alvar Aalto created this vase in 1936 as an ode to his homeland.
