Crafted in ceramic, this plant pot displays a curved, organic shape without corners and was originally created by Aino Aalto for the terrace of the home she and Alvar built on Helsinki’s Riihitie Road. Reinterpreted in select sizes for indoor use, the plant pot embodies the Aaltos’ belief that even the smallest details are worthy of our time and attention. Although the plant pot featured in the Artek presentation at the Paris World Fair in 1937, it never went into serial production. The pot is handmade from ceramic, a material central to the Aalto’s building vocabulary.

Artek was founded in Helsinki in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. Their goal was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means.” In keeping with the radical spirit of its founders, Artek today remains an innovative player in the world of modern design, developing new products at the intersection of design, architecture, and art. The Artek collection consists of furniture, lighting, and accessories designed by Finnish masters and leading international designers. It stands for clarity, functionality, and poetic simplicity.
