With the Aalto Vase Set of 2, Special 140th Anniversary Edition, Finish brand littala marks its anniversary by celebrating fellow countrymen Alvar Aalto and his most storied design. Introduced to much acclaim at the 1937 World's Fair in Paris, the vase marked an explorative period in materials and organic forms for Aalto's long career. Initial sketches for the piece were called "Eskimo woman's leather breeches," suggestive of soft leather's flowing contours. Prototypes for the piece involved blowing glass into the center of an arrangement of wooden sticks, letting the molten material swell organically. As a symbol for Finish design, littala's glassblowers take pride in bringing to life Aalto's wavy, optically brilliant form in a process realized in 12 stages and 30 working hours for each vase.


What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, now celebrates generations of essential objects made to enrich people's everyday lives. Iittala creates distinctive, multi-functional objects with lasting design that allows for individual use and expression. In the early years of modernism and functionalism, during the 1930s and 40s, pioneers like Alvar Aalto and Kaj Franck led the development of the Iittala brand. Their belief was that objects should always be designed with a thought, essential and above all, available to all. It was their thinking that set the foundation for the Iittala design philosophy ; to push the boundaries and to give people beauty and function. Iittala strives to create icons that will last a lifetime. What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, now celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people's everyday lives. More than just beautiful objects, Iittala creates timeless designs that will never be thrown away.
