aalto finlandia tall vase
The unique shape of Alvar Aalto's vase, designed in 1936, is forever modern and remains one of the major icons of glass design. The Alvar Aalto Collection is a collection of vases and bowls that can also be used as serving dishes and decorations and are just as versatile as when Aalto first designed them.
Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) was born in Finland. Thanks to his original style and unique talents, Aalto is one of the greatest names in modern architecture and design. During his career, he designed many buildings in different parts of the world: concert halls, libraries, hospitals, museums, and private homes, including the Villa Mairea. His furniture and lamps, often starting out as a part of the buildings he designed, are produced together with Finnish Artek.
