Vase Classis on Offer
The curved form of the waves is generally considered as the trademark of the products and buildings designed by Alvar Aalto. The Scandinavian architect and designer has perfected this shape in the design of his legendary vase. Designed in 1936 on the occasion of the world exhibition in Paris and in 1937 for the first time in the series, the vase did not only evolve to the flagship of the company Iittala, but has also become one of the most famous glass objects worldwide.
Surely, the well-known hotel “Savoy” has also contributed to this glory by decorating all its tables in Helsinki with this particular vase. After that many people became aware of the - at that time completely new - design of the vase and from there on the Aalto vase received the name "Savoy Vase".
Ever since the company Iittala has set up the vase in many different designs and colours and now offers a unique set: the Aalto vases gift set includes the clear glass or opal white vase in height 95 mm and 120 mm.Also in our blog:
