Somebody ought to write a book called “words to use when describing iittala’s homewares” – because the word “amazing” is tossed about too often these days.
iittala believe that objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that allows for individual use and expression. The Finnish company’s Alvar Aalto Collection actually dates back to 1936, is inspired by the great architectural and design-oriented mind of Alvar Aalto.
Fluid, organic shapes define the Alvar Alto Vase, which is a spectacular blend of design brilliance and timelessness. And the craftsmanship is superb: it takes seven craftsmen, twelve work stages, 1100°
c and thirty hours to make just one vase. Each vase is meticulously mouth blown by iittala’s skilled glassworkers in Finland, and this smaller version of Alvar Aalto's classic is no less fantastical as the original.
For a vase that transcends time and trends alike, look no further than iittala and Alvar Aalto.
Alvar Alto Vase features:
- Handmade in Finland from glass.
- Each vase is individually made, with thirty hours of work dedicated to it.
- A timeless, superbly-crafted design by architect and designer Alvar Aalto.
