Flower vase by Alvar Aalto

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 offered here.

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 vase is inspired by the shapes of the Finnish landscape and lakes.
