Iittala Aalto 22cm Vase Linen. Since winning the 1937 Paris World Fair, design legend Alvar Aalto's fluid waves ("aalto" in Finnish) shape has become a timeless symbol of Scandinavian interior design. Inspired by the natural beauty of his native Finland, Aalto created iconic pieces that merged function with sculpture. Each unique Aalto vase is first mouthblown, then hand cut before going through several polishings at the Iittala Glass Factory. The versatile size is perfect for most flower bouquets. The new linen colour brings natural elegance to any interior. A lovely birthday, wedding or anniversary gift.
