The Riihitie plant pots, designed by Aino Aalto for the family’s home in Helsinki, were part of the collection the Aaltos presented at the Paris World Fair in 1937. 80 years later, Artek launched the ceramic planters, named after the street address of their original setting, in celebration of the centenary of Finland’s independence. The Riihitie plant pots are handcrafted, and the blue and white colour were inspired by the ceramic tiles of the Muuratsalo Experimental House, also known as the family's summer retreat. The organic, undulating design of the pots reflects the Aaltos’ close connection to nature.
