While many European designers glamourised the revolution of the maschines, their Scandinavian collegues turned towards nature. Alvar Aalto was one of the trendsetters with his organic shapes, like the Savoy Vase displays: His vase is world-famous. The same natural shapes emerge in his works: in the wave-shaped walls of the Finish pavillon, on the New Yorker World Trade Fair 1939, in the architecture of the Dusseldorf Schauspielhaus, in loungers, Spanish walls and tea trolleys.
The offered lanterns of the Aalto-Series have the same tradition of the world famous vase. Aalto was convinced that design should be human in its details. The design of the lanterns leans against the vases and offers the ideal amedment to the other products of iittala.
The Aalto-lanterns are available in different colours.Also in our blog:
