Q & A
iittala Aalto Special Edition Recycled Vase - 5-1/2"
Please note: Because each is made from recycled glass, colors may vary slightly and small bubbles and other unique imperfections may occur.
Pieces from the special edition recycled glass collection by iittala make the perfect give for those who seek to reuse, repurpose, and recycle - as well as those who love one-of-a-kind treasures. Because each is made with leftover and mixed glass mass from the factory in Finland, the color may vary from cool blues to calming greens. Each is still handcrafted and mouth-blown to be of the same durable quality Finland is known for, just with a focus on sustainable style. Each is specially engraved to say "IITTALA 2021 RECYLCED" on the base, and even the famous "i" red logo sticker notes its recycled material.
Here, the glass is used to create Alvar Aalto's famous "Savoy" vase in a rare 5-1/2" (140 mm) size. Flowers will bunch beautifully in the iittala Aalto Vase, but its purpose far surpasses floral arrangements. Designer Alvar Aalto wanted to let the end user decide its use, whether that be to hold the paintbrushes of an artist or the marbles of an avid collector. Though the award-winning design's raw beauty seems like an organic occurrence, it requires 7 iittala craftsmen, 12 work stages and 30 hours to create just one of these extraordinary works of art.
