Inspired by the original Savoy vase, the taller and leaner Finlandia will make a dramatic display with or without flowers. The free-flowing lines of Alvar Aalto's 1936 design are left untouched, but the vase is taken to new heights. Saturated in the alluring jewel tone of the 2016 Emerald color, the 1936 design is as lively as ever. Though the award-winning design's raw beauty seems like an organic occurence, it requires 7 craftsmen, 12 work stages and 30 hours to create just one of these extraordinary works of art.
The new emerald color way is a nod to Iittala's past as well as the Aalto legacy and will only be produced throughout 2016. A similar shade was present in Aino Aalto's (Alvar's wife) original collection from 1932.
Measurements: 8" H x 4-3/4" W x 4" D (20 x 12 x 10 cm)
