The Aalto vase dates back to 1936 and was first presented at the Paris World Fair the following year. Its fluid, organic form is still mouth blown today at the Iittala factory. It takes a team of seven skilled craftsmen working as one to create one Aalto vase – an icon of modern design.
Revered as one of the greatest names in modern architecture and design, Alvar Aalto redefined Scandinavian
design in 1937 when he presented his vase collection at the Paris World Exhibition. During his celebrated career,
Aalto designed a diverse range of buildings worldwide, such as concert halls, libraries, hospitals, museums and private homes, including the Villa Mairea.
