Aalto vase – totally natural.

With the Finlandia collection, Iittala completed the Savoy series. Nearby identic in its shape, but higher than the original, the Finlandia Vase is especially suitable for large flowers.

Whereas many European designers exalted the revolution of the machines, Scandinavian artists turned to nature. Alvar Aalto was one of the trend-setters with his Savoy vase including the typical natural Aalto forms – waves – that also appeared in the shape of the walls of the Finnish pavilion at the World Exposition in New York in 1939, in the architecture of the Schauspielhaus in Duesseldorf, in armchairs, Spanish walls, tea-wagons etc.

Aalto was convinced that design had to be human in all its details.

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 – maybe the shapes of the vase are based on Finnish landscapes and lakes.

The timeless Aalto vase ranks among the most famous glass objects of the world; it is a synonym for Finnish glass art and the manufacturer Iittala. The Savoy vase is currently being exhibited in the most important design museums.
