Since winning the 1937 Paris World Fair, design legend Alvar Aalto’s asymmetrical wave (“aalto” in Finnish) shape has become his creative signature from architecture to glass. Combining simple design and a craftsman’s expertise, Aalto’s iconic glass vase is a staple of Scandinavian home design. The world famous Aalto vase perfectly showcases Aalto’s lifelong dedication to function and sculpture. Each unique non-leaded crystal vase is first mouthblown, then hand cut before going through several polishings at the Iittala Glass Factory. Ideal for wider flower bouquets. A striking piece of home décor or a memorable gift. The radiant amethyst colour transforms from a bluish tone to a vibrant violet hue according to the light.
