Aalto Vase 10.5" Linen
Inspired by waves (“aalto” in Finnish) in the water, the Aalto vase is a symbol of Finnish design and one of the most famous glass objects in the world. Throughout the 1930s, Aalto designed a vast collection of vases and bowls in various shapes for submission in the Paris and New York world fairs. One of the most distinct pieces that the designer created during that time was a vase simply known as ‘3032’. ‘3032’ brings a refreshing twist with its soft, organic shape that seamlessly combines form and function. It’s a perfect vase for a wide array of flower bouquets that suits any interior. After discovering the ‘3032’ design in the Aalto archives, Iittala set about producing the new design with much of the same care and innovative techniques it uses with the original Aalto vase. Linen’s refined warmth brings a versatility that works in all interiors and combines especially well with plants and flowers.
