Alvar Aalto’s vision for the Iittala Aalto Vase turned simple design elements into a beautiful form, suitable for vases, trays and votive holders.
Drawing inspiration from the beauty of the natural world, the undulating shape of each Aalto piece alludes to the untamed shorelines of Finland’s many lakes. The fluid aesthetic reaffirms the deep connection between man and nature, while making a statement against the failure of industrial production to meet universal human needs.
Flowers look glorious in this vase. Fill it with a bouquet or keep it unfilled for a simple sculptural element.
