Edward Wohl Breadboards

Each board is crafted by joining sections from a single piece of specially selected, figured bird’s-eye maple, so the wood tone and figuring are consistent throughout. Each is precision-shaped and beveled for graceful shape and balance. Individually hand-sanded and finished to a sensual silkiness, each board is an art object designed to add aesthetic and utilitarian pleasure to your daily life. Some owners display their cutting boards as art and hesitate to use them. However, they are designed to provide many years of service and satisfaction; minimal care will preserve their appearance.

Aalto Vases by Alvar Aalto for Iittala

Alvar Aalto’s first sketches for the vases were playfully called “Eskimo woman’s leather trousers”. Nature played a great role in Alvar Aalto’s life and creativity. The undulating forms of the objects in the Aalto collection are like the Finnish landscape with its thousands of lakes – beautiful, alive and untamed. Glassblowers at the Iittala factory still meticulously handcraft the legendary vases that are variations on one theme, fluid organic shapes that let the end user decide the use. Interpretations of the shape in new colours and materials add to the growing Alvar Aalto Collection and remain true to his original design idea.
