Aalto Vase (12cm)
The Aalto Vase - an icon of modern design
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 vas.
The form of Aalto's vase has become a language of its own with notable references including the Cottbus Library in eastern Germany by Pritzker Prize winning architects Herzog & De Meuron.
