Aalto ice cubes
Went to Alvar Aalto's house. Very nice house. He had an easy chair just like mine. You can populate an Aalto house with furniture, very livable, unlike of course, Le Corbusier or Mies van de Rohe, where the interiors are definitively uninhabitable. Aalto's house was almost cosy, and even had an escape stair for him to use when he was pissed off - most imaginative- and a balcony over the office to look at drawings and models 'at a distance'. I bought a book about it and an Aalto pot stand and an Aalto ice cube maker (shape of vase) The ice cube maker especially cool for now, probably stupid cliche later.
