Description

Aalto Vase – Entirely Natural.

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.

The timeless Aalto vase ranks among the most famous glass objects in the world and is synonymous with Finnish glass art and the manufacturer Iittala. Today, the Aalto vase is the absolute classic of the designer vases.The so-called Savoy vase by Alvar Aalto is exhibited in the most important design museums of the world.For animal welfare reasons we would like to point out that the Aalto vase does not provide an appropriate tank for fish of any kind.The goldfish in the illustration on this product page were only removed from their natural habitat for the duration of photographic production.
