It is hard to imagine today the waves Alvar Aalto's Savoy vase caused in 1936. Alvar Aalto entered a competition to find pieces for the Finnish pavilion at the 1937 Paris World's Fair. He entered the Aalto vase under the pseudonym "Eskimo woman's leather breeches" [not really sure where THAT came from...!]
Its mysterious form stood in total opposition to the accepted machine centred thinking of the time. The Aalto vase now stands as one of the most celebrated design icons of the Century. Timeless, elegant design, the Aalto shape reflects the lakes in Finland, holding water in your home the way the lakes are cocooned within the mountains.
This iconic design adds a striking detail to any table. The smaller size (75 mm) of the pressed glass bowl is the newest addition to the Alvar Aalto Collection. Ideal for display or for serving. The ideal combination of form and function, its makes a perfect gift. Available in vibrant aqua. Made in Finland.
