Czech designer Jan ÄŒtvrtník has won the Climate Competition organized by Droog with a vase based on Alvar Aalto’s famous design, but modified to express the effects of global warming. The Aalto vase was inspired by the outline of a Finnish lake and ÄŒtvrtník’s Droog Aalto design suggests how the lake’s shape could change due to climate change. “I realized that climate changes are visualized mostly by numbers and scientific measurements. In order to show changes, it is good to have a reference point, the Aalto vase was mine,” says ÄŒtvrtník.
