About Alvar Alto

Born in Kuortane in 1898, Alvar Aalto made his name as a master of modern architecture through his unique style and exceptional talent. He worked closely with his wife Aino Aalto.

Aalto designed concert halls, libraries, hospitals, museums and private homes, among others, all around the world. His works were exhibited in the New York Museum of Modern Art already in the 1930s. Aalto also designed several objects which were originally intended to become parts of buildings and decorations. However, the objects took on a life of their own.

The most famous of the objects designed by Aalto is the Aalto vase, which was first seen at the 1937 Paris World Exposition. Independently and together with his wife Aino Aalto, Alvar Aalto designed a number of versatile objects.

Key Features

The glass used in Iittala glassware is high quality and optically very clear. It resists both chemical and mechanical wear well. All of Iittala's utility glasses can be washed in the dishwasher. The glasses should be positioned in the top rack of the dishwasher so that they do not touch each other during the wash cycle. The surface area of glass expands when heated and therefore glasses should not be stacked while still warm from washing as they then may stick together and break.

For hot drinks, use only glasses that are made of heat-resistant special glass - HotCool and Tsaikka. These glasses can also be used in microwave oven. All other Iittala glasses and glass pitchers are meant only for cold drinks and should not be used for hot drinks or in microwave oven.

Delicate stemware, pitchers and jugs, mugs, large-footed dessert bowls and objects with glass of varying thickness should be washed by hand and we recommend hand wash only. To clean these items use regular dish washing detergent and a soft dish washing brush. Rinse well and leave to dry or dry with a soft cloth.

For glass vases we recommend hand washing. If there are stubborn stains on your flower vase, soak the vase in 1dl laundry detergent to one liter of water. Do not scrub, as scouring powder or abrasive scrubbing pads scratch and spoil the surface.

The so-called burning lens phenomenon may damage objects and surfaces in the vicinity of the glass object. To avoid this, do not leave a lens-shaped thick glass object or vase filled with water in direct sunlight.
