Revered since its introduction at the 1937 World's Fair in Paris, it's the shape that moves. To mark their birthdate, Finish brand littala brings you an iconic design by its country's most iconic creator in the Alvar Aalto designed Aalto Vase Set of 2, Special 140th Anniversary Edition. A pioneer in modern architecture, Alvar Aalto took visual cues from the natural world, treating his architecture plans and design as works of art. The idea for this vase came to Aalto during a time where he was exploring organic forms and an array of materials. His original colored sketches for the design showed flowing contours like that of a garment he referred to as "Eskimo woman's leather breeches." These sketches were brought to life with prototypes involving blowing glass into the center of an arrangement of artfully composed wooden sticks. The result was a swelled organic form with gentle waves. Today, these waves are conjured up pridefully by litttala's master glassblowers. Each of these exquisite vases requires up to 30 working hours in a process of 12 stages.


From humble beginnings as a small glass factory, today Iittala offers a wide variety of modern Scandinavian housewares that demonstrate the company's commitment to design quality and product longevity. Based in Helsinki, Finland, Iittala continues to make cookware, tableware and other home accessories that are both lovely and useful, based primarily on the forward-thinking philosophies of design icons Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto.
