Czech designer Jan ÄŒtvrtnÃk 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 ÄŒtvrtnÃkâ€™s Droog Aalto design suggests how the lakeâ€™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 ÄŒtvrtnÃk.
