Iittala Alvar Aalto Vases

By: Sanjeevkumar

Aalto means wave. Therefore it is obvious that Aino Aalto, the wife of the world-famous architect and designer Alvar Aalto, got her inspiration for the glass jars from waves. The glass series "Aino" was created in 1932 and was first named "Bolgeblick" that describes the waves that a pebble thrown in the water leaves behind on the surface. The functional and timeless simplicity of the glasses is still up-to-date. The products of the Aino Aalto series were awarded the gold medal at the Triennale in Milan in 1936.

One of the most popular glass ranges, Verna takes it's name from Latin and translates to Spring.

Verna's bright colors are like a breeze of spring, and its glasses and dessert bowls lead the mind to garden parties and to summer cottages. Kerttu Nurminen's works can be found in the collections of the most notable museums in several countries and her glass art has represented Finland all over the world.

During his career, he designed a great many buildings concert halls, cultural buildings, libraries, museums, private homes and villas. Aalvar Aalto led the way with his organic shapes.
