Glass vase by Alvar Aalto

With the Finlandia collection, Iittala complements the Savoy series. Nearly identical in shape, but taller than the original and slightly tapered towards the bottom, the Finlandia Vase is especially suitable for large bouquets and long flowers.

While many European designers glorified the revolution of the machines, their Scandinavian colleagues turned to nature. Alvar Aalto was one of the trend-setters with his organic shapes, such as with the Savoy Vase.

His vase is world-famous. The same natural shapes appear again and again in his works: in the wave-like walls of the Finnish Pavilion at the New York World’s Fair in 1939, in the architecture of the Düsseldorf Theatre House, in armchairs, Spanish walls and tea trolleys. Aalto was completely convinced that design should be human down to the smallest detail.

At Iittala’s request, Alvar Aalto created the Aalto vase in different shapes, sizes and colours for the World Exposition in Paris in 1937. Alvar Aalto was the son of a cartographer – perhaps the shapes of the vase are modelled on Finnish landscapes and lakes. The timeless Aalto vase is one of the most famous glass objects of the world and is a synonym for Finnish glass art and the manufacturer Iittala. The so-called Savoy Vase is currently displayed in the most important design museums in the world.
