Let’s hop over to Finland for the day and take a look at Alvar Aalto’s Aalto Vase. Exhibited at the 1937 Paris Expo, the vase was an instant classic with its Aalto-organic shape and fine glass sculpting.
I have professed my love for Finnish architect, Alvar Aalto a handful of times before but let me repeat, “I LOVE Alvar Aalto!” For all you non-architecture folk, Alvar Aalto is one of (if not THE) the Nordic’s most influential architects in the 20th century and one of my personal favorites.
I stumbled upon this interesting video describing the design and glass blown process of the Aalto vase that I thought I would share.
