The Aalto vase designed by famous architect Alvar Aalto is an icon of Finnish design. The first version of it was presented in 1936 and got much attention at the Paris World Fair in 1937. Since then the Aalto vase in many different sizes and versions has conquered the hearts of many generations world wide. It is produced in several different colors. The elegantly folding glass is a perfect example of Alvar Aalto's free flowing imagination.
The vases are still today mouth blown into a mold at the Iittala glass factory in Finland. The production of one vase goes through 12 work stages, and every single Aalto vase is unique.
This vase is in a beautiful light blue color. We photographed it together with our sea blue vase to give you an impression of the hues and also to allow you to see how nicely these two pair together. There is also a picture of this vase with our 60-years anniversary vase from 1996 in in beautiful Rio brown color.
This vase has an air bubble within the glass. It does not affect the surfaces of the vase, neither on the inner nor the outer side. Se close up picture.
