Iittala takes the legendary vase to another level with the new recycled edition Aalto vase. The vase is made of 100% recycled glass produced entirely from waste glass at the Iittala Glass Factory in Finland. Each unique glass vase is first mouthblown, then hand cut before going through several polishings at the Iittala Glass Factory. Mixed coloured glass results in a beautiful variation of blues and greens. A versatile size that suits any interior. A beautiful decorative item that makes a thoughtful gift.

Alvar Aalto famously never dictated how his iconic glass vases should be used. It was his belief that the owner should decide. Perhaps it is this freedom to interpret that has helped the Alvar Aalto Collection remain both timeless and fresh. The Aalto vase is one of the most iconic glassware pieces in modern Scandinavian design. First created in 1936, it wasn’t until the following year that it gained world recognition when it was debuted by Iittala at the 1937 Paris World’s Fair. Today, it takes a team of seven skilled craftsmen working as one to create one mouth-blown Aalto vase. The fluid, organic design in cool rain makes a striking addition to any home décor. Perfect for showcasing mid-size flower arrangements or as a gift idea.
