When he wasn’t designing modern furniture or urban landmarks, architect Alvar Aalto had his hand in glassware. Enduring favorites to this day, his pieces are still produced by expert Finnish glassblowers at the iittala factory near Helsinki. Boasting the same fluid lines as the Aalto Vase, the Aalto Bowl can be used alone or as a beautiful display piece to showcase fruit, sweets, or keepsakes.
“Lasting design against throwawayism” is the core philosophy of the home design brand iittala. Founded in 1881, the Finnish company has been partnering since the 1920s with Scandinavian and international designers of note.
