Iittala | Aalto Vase 160mm
Alvar Aalto called his design "Eskimo Woman's Leather Breeches".

The flowing curves won the contest and charmed the audience of the Paris World Fair in the summer of 1937. For more than 70 years, the most iconic glass object in the world has been handcrafted in Iittala, Finland.
