The Finnish original.
Aalto Vase – truly natural. While many European designers glorified the revolution of machines, their Scandinavian colleagues paid more attention to nature. Alvar Aalto with his organic forms like with the here offered Savoy Vase, one of the trend setters. His vase is world famous. The same natural forms reappear every time in his works: in the wave-formed walls of the Finnish pavilion on the New York exposition 1939, in the architecture of the Düsseldorf theatre, in chairs, Spanish walls and tea-trolleys.
Aalto was convinced that design should be human even in the smallest details.
After iittala's wish, Alvar Aalto created the Aalto-Vase in different forms, sizes and colours for the world-exposition in Paris in 1937. Alvar Aalto was the son of a cartographer – maybe the forms of the vases are copied from Finnish landscapes and seas.
The Aalto Vase, also known as the Savoy Vase, is a world famous piece of glassware or a synonym of glass art and the manufacturer iittala. The Savoy Vase from Alvar Aalto is exposed in the most important design museums of the world.
