The iconic and gorgeous Savoy Vase is having its 70th birthday. Designed in 1936 by Alvar Aalto it has been produced continously for seven decades by Iittala, based in Finland.

A representative of Iittala has said, "I don't think Aalto would have designed such a vase if he'd known more about how to make it.".

So many good things in life seem to come about that way. Here are a few original design collages for the Savoy:
