Alto Vase

In 1936, Finnish architect and furniture designer Alvar Aalto anonymously entered a competition to design a vase suitable for showing at the Paris Worlds Fair. Aaltos vase, which he sketched out with Crayon on cardboard and scratch paper, became one of the most famous pieces of glass in history. Aalto, coincidentally Finnish for wave, created a vase that has free-flowing and natural lines. Also known as the Savoy vase, Aaltos vase continues to win awards, has residency in famous museums, and is recognized and appreciated in hundreds of countries.
