(1894 - 1949)


Aino Marsio graduated in architecture, at the Helsinki Polytechnic in 1920. In 1923, she started working at Gunnar A. Wahlroos' studio, leaving it shortly after to work for Alvar Aalto’s architecture studio, whom she marry in 1924.
Alvar and Aino Aalto worked together until Aino's death, in 1949.
Aino was a pioneer in finnish design. Her Bölgeblick glass series became a design classic, awarded with the second prize on a competition held by Finnish glass factories, in 1932, and the exhibition design for Artek's stand, at the 1936 Milan Triennal, earned her the Grand Prix prize and at the same Triennal.
