Aino Aalto

By iittala


  • Description

    Simplicity, a space-saving shape that permits stacking and versatility were the starting points for the Aino Aalto glassware. Ideas that have withstood the times well. This challenging design, inspired by the rings made when a stone hits the water, has kept creating new rings since its launch in 1932.

  • Technical Info

    Iittala-glass is high quality, special glass, which is optically very bright. It endures chemical and mechanical wear well.

    Iittala glass has been specially treated to be dishwasher safe. By following the instructions below, your Iittala glasses will bring you joy for a long time. Place the glasses on the upper level of your dishwasher so that the rims do not touch during the wash. Fill the upper level of the dishwasher with other objects, so that the spurts of water do not move the glasses. Rinse milk and buttermilk glasses with cold water before placing them in the dishwasher to prevent proteins from settling on the glasses. Use short dishwashing programs and low temperatures. It is best to hand wash delicate glasses, pitchers and jugs. Do not stack warm glasses immediately after washing as they may get stuck and break. When serving hot drinks, we recommend glasses made from special heat resistant glass. Iittala glass is not oven safe nor do we recommend you put them in the microwave.

    In 1924 Aino Marsio (1894-1949) went to work at architect Alvar Aalto's office. The two fell in love, married and began a long partnership. In 1932, Alvar Aalto, was beaten by his wife in a design competition. The winning entry, Aalto glasses, also won a gold medal at the Milan Triennale. These and other items of glassware designed by Aino Aalto are made for everyday use. Their simple and yet timeless design continues to be part of our life 80 years on. Aino Aalto went on to create the furniture company Artek in 1935 together with her husband Alvar Aalto, Nils-Gustav Hahl and Maire Gullichsen.
