Alvar Aalto's production shows the influence of the Finnish lake landscape. The soft wave-like shape received international attention for the first time at the 1937 Paris World's Fair. The undulating shape has become a timeless classic of modern Nordic design and the hallmark of Aalto's design, from architecture to art glass. Each classic Aalto vase is made individually at the Iittala glass factory by mouth blowing, cut from the glass mass by hand and polished to its final shape. A glass vase is a striking interior design element. The new moss green color brings natural tones to the interior. The wide vase brings out the large bouquets beautifully. Excellent gift idea.
