The willow grouse is distinguished by its use of camouflage as protection against predators, changing its plumage from light brown in summer to snow white in winter.
These delightful glass birds are individually mouth-blown glass creations. Like the natural birds they represent, it’s the tiny differences that give each and every glass bird its very own personality. A new bird has joined the collection every year since Toikka’s tiny Flycatchers first took flight in 1972. There are currently over 400 birds in the collection. The lovely little glass bird is the perfect gift for any occasion and a beautiful addition to any home.
Add the unexpected to your home decor as well as glam. This Arteriors Aberdeen container works its magic as storage or a simple statement of the Big Apple! A lovely way to say thank you to your NYC host!
In 1936, Alvar Aalto’s series of glass vases won first prize in the 1936 Karhula-Iittala Glass Design Competition. Compared to the decorative objects of the time, the simple yet organic shape of this vase was a revolutionary statement. Inspired by waves (“aalto” in Finnish) in the water, the vase is a symbol of Finnish design and one of the most famous glass objects in the world.
Each in every vase in the Alvar Aalto Collection continues to be mouth blown at the Iittala factory and comes in a wide range of colors and sizes. The Collection is a staple of modern Scandinavian design and Iittala’s most iconic series. Additional items inspired by Aalto and created by Pentagon Design such as steel bowls, wooden platters and votives can also be found in the Alvar Aalto Collection.

In 1936, Alvar Aalto created this classic series. The Alvar Aalto Collection has been a staple of modern Scandinavian design and the most iconic series in the Iittala range ever since. Today, just as then, each and every piece in the Alvar Aalto Collection is mouth blown at the Iittala glass factory. Created in a wide range of colours and sizes, a votive from the Aalto Collection is a pleasure to own or give as a gift.
