Alvar Aalto

Alvar Aalto is one of Finland's most famous architects and designers. He was one of the pioneers of modern architecture and had a unique organic design language. During his long career he designed among others, concert halls, libraries and hospitals, but also several private homes. Alvar Aalto also designed furniture for the brand Artek which he founded together with his wife Aino Aalto in 1935. He is probably most famous for the Aalto vase, or Savoy as it’s really called. It was designed for Iittala in 1936 and is something of an icon in Finnish design.
