Why is it Special?
Since winning the 1937 Paris World Fair, design pioneer Alvar Aalto’s asymmetrical waves (“aalto” in Finnish) have become a timeless symbol of Scandinavian design. Taking inspiration from his native Finnish landscape, Aalto created iconic pieces that merged function with sculpture.
This lovely oak serving platter is part of the Alvar Aalto collection by Iittala. Perfect for serving snacks, hors d'oueuvres or as a modern, standalone piece. Drawing inspiration from the beauty of the natural world, the undulating shape of each Aalto piece alludes to the untamed shorelines of Finland's thousands of lakes. The fluid aesthetic reaffirms the deep connection between man and nature.
