Love the collection - 10" vase is skinny

Carrie from Minneapolis, MN– Verified Buyer

I love the Alvar Aalto collection and had an original vase (about 3" tall). In the 10" tall version just purchased, I was disappointed to realize that the proportions are significantly different than the 3" tall original - much skinnier. The base is only 2-3" across (asymmetrical, hard to describe exactly), resulting in a very skinny vase that holds a small bouquet (10 small tulips) and risks becoming top-heavy easily.

Modern yet Timeless

Carolina from miami beach, FL– Verified Buyer

I bought this vase for our console table. It sits by a window and it is so beautiful on its own I have yet to put flowers in it. Worth every penny.

About the Designer

Alvar Aalto

Alvar Aalto Finland (1898 - 1976)

Alvar Aalto (1898-1976), one of the founders of Artek, was born in Kuortane, Finland. Alvar Aalto is recognized today as one of the great masters of modern architecture. During his long and prolific career, Aalto's work embraced almost all key public institutions - town halls, theatres, churches, libraries and universities - as well as standardized housing and private homes. Aalto's architecture is distinctively Finnish. It is marked by a warm humanity and strong individuality. His buildings derive their special aesthetic character from their dynamic relationship with their natural surroundings, their human scale, superbly executed details, unique treatment of materials and ingenious use of lighting. Like all great art, however, Aalto's architecture transcends national boundaries. His work is not the exclusive property of Finland: it forms a part of a common cultural heritage of European and worldwide significance. Alvar Aalto began designing furnishings as a natural and important extension of his architectural thinking. His first modern piece of furniture was created in 1931-32 for the Tuberculosis Sanatorium in Paimio, which proved to be his international breakthrough. Artek was set up in 1935 to market and sell Alvar and Aino Aalto's furniture, lamps and textiles, particularly on international markets where Artek focused its operations from the initial stages. Through the innovations in form and line that were born in his furniture designs, Alvar Aalto's name has also become important in the history of design. In fact, Aalto first achieved fame in Continental Europe as a furniture designer, and only later on as an architect. His contribution to furniture design was among his foremost achievements in its own right, and it sowed the seed from which many of his architectural ideas sprang forth. Alvar Aalto's furniture and lighting pieces form the basis of the Artek range.
