The 201mm Aalto Vase in Light Blue - 80th Anniversary Special Edition.
Iittala have evolved the Aalto vase range with sublime results. These taller designs are great for use with longer stemmed flowers and maintain those iconic curves that have stood the test of time. This 201mm high Light Blue vase is a special 80th Anniversary Special Edition and is a great addition to the Iittala range and is a stunning colour that looks sensational with or without flowers.
The true inspiration behind this legendary shape is somewhat vague and ambiguous. Theories range from the more obvious world of modernist abstract painting and sculpture, through to the more abstract shorelines of Finland's fjords, or the captivating shape of a puddle.
Could views like these have been the influence behind many of Aalto's designs? His designs such as the Paimio chair display great cohesion and design flair.
The beautiful free-form lines of this stunning vase still look as fresh and contemporary today, as they did back in the thirties. In many ways, it contains the quintessential qualities of Finnish design: originality, straightforwardness, and aesthetic sophistication.
This beautiful Light Blue evolution of the Aalto design is a great addition to the range. A pleasure to own and this is the perfect gift for any occasion.
Each lead-free crystal piece is mouth-blown into a mould and hand-polished. Please note that this item is not dishwasher safe.
