In 1936, Alvar Aalto created his classic series of glass vases. The Alvar Aalto Collection has been a staple of modern Scandinavian design and the most iconic series in the Iittala range ever since. Today, just as then, each and every vase in the Alvar Aalto Collection is mouth blown at the Iittala glass factory. Created in a wide range of colors and sizes, a vase from the Aalto Collection is a pleasure to own or give as a gift. The Aalto Collection also includes items inspired by Alvar Aalto: steel bowls, wooden platters and votives designed by Pentagon Design.

Aalto's unique aesthetic helped to define Finnish design as well as introduce it to a global audience. Aalto hallmarks include a harmonious relationship with nature, functionalism combined with beauty, excellent attention to details and an ingenious use of materials. Aalto's designs were already being exhibited internationally as early as the 1930s, including at New York's Museum of Modern Art. When Aalto premiered his "Savoy Vase" at the 1930 New York Worldâ?s Fair, it instantly caused a sensation with its dynamic wavy design that was as alive and fluid as the Finnish lakes that inspired it. The legendary vase is one of the world's most famous glass objects and remains a timeless staple for Iittala.
