Van Vincent – The Aalto Vase for Winkreative

Winkreative have had their eyes on Van Vincent, and it was a matter of time before the Dutch master was commissioned to produce some striking images for their client. Here Vincent photographs the classic design icon, the Aalto vase, for Lexus’ “Beyond” magazine. 

Unveiled by legendary the Finnish designer in 1936 at the Paris World’s Fair, Alvar Aalto wanted his design made purely from everyday glass, and not lead crystal, so it was commonplace for the early vases to be produced with glass available at the factory right up until the 1960’s when a new range of colours were introduced. For the feature, Vincent captures Aalto’s classic clear version and the stunning “rain” model. Do yourself a favour and get one – no household is complete without it.
