His unique aesthetic set the tone in Finnish design and helped introduce Finnish design to a global audience. Aalto's works are characterized by the harmonious connection to nature, function combined with style, his attention to detail and the creative ability to use materials. During the 1930s many of his works were on exhibitions around the world, including at the Modern Museum in New York. When Alvar Aalto showed the Savoy vase in the 30s at the host show in Paris, with its dynamically wavy shape, it became a pure sensation. The legendary vase whose shape is said to represent Finland's 1000 lakes is one of the world's most famous glass objects and remains a timeless icon product for Iittala.
