Finnish design legend Alvar Aalto combined simple design with a craftsman’s expertise to create iconic pieces of home decor that are functional and sculptural. His asymmetrical, fluid wave design for Iittala won the 1937 Paris World Fair and became his creative signature from architecture to glass. Now a globally recognized symbol of modern Scandinavian interior design, each unique Aalto vase is mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory, hand cut and then polished several times. Now in a new size which showcases taller flowers perfectly. Linen adds fresh, calm detail to any interior. A striking piece of home décor or a memorable gift.
Materials & Finishes
For glass vases we recommend hand washing. If there are stubborn stains on your flower vase, soak the vase in 1dl laundry detergent to one liter of water. Do not scrub, as scouring powder or abrasive scrubbing pads scratch and spoil the surface.
The so-called burning lens phenomenon may damage objects and surfaces in the vicinity of the glass object. To avoid this, do not leave a lens-shaped thick glass object or vase filled with water in direct sunlight.

The most important Finnish architect of the 20th Century and a central figure in international modernism. Born in Kuortane in 1898, Alvar Aalto made his name as a master of modern architecture through his unique style and exceptional talent. He worked closely with his wife Aino Aalto. Aalto designed concert halls, libraries, hospitals, museums and private homes, among others, all around the world. His works were exhibited in the New York Museum of Modern Art already in the 1930s. Aalto also designed several objects which were originally intended to become parts of buildings and decorations. However, the objects took on a life of their own.
What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, today celebrates generations of essential objects where quality, aesthetics and functionality are important values. Iittala believes in interior design that lasts a lifetime.
