Finnish design icons:
Here is some additional info by Iittala:
"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."

The 1977 Folio Society edition of J.R.R. Tolkien´s fantasy novel "The Lord of the Rings" is in my opinion unsurpassed in beauty. I hope you like the photos I shot this morning. One of the pics also includes "The Simillarion", which is not a part of the ring trilogy.
