The undulating form of this vessel evokes the Finnish landscape with its thousands of lakes – beautiful and untamed. The tealight holder is a sweet version of the larger classic originals. It is said that Alvar Aalto preferred not to label them as “vases” but instead wanted to keep the purpose open-ended and let the recipient decide how to use the vessel. Since 1936, each lead-free crystal piece has been mouth blown into a mold and hand-polished in Finland.
Alvar Aalto is recognized as one of the greatest architects and designers of the 20th century. His humanistic approach to design consistently focused on organic shapes and materials and always considered the end-user’s experience and emotions.
For use with a tealight set in tin/metal (not included). Hand wash only.
