Design Tapio Wirkkala, 1983
Made in Finland by Iittala

A clear vase with delicate striations reminiscent of the mushroom for which it is named. A strikingly elegant piece of Wirkkala art glass from Iittala.

Born in Hanko, Finland, Tapio Wirkkala is known as the versatile genius of design. His contribution to design includes everything from glass products to the design of banknotes and graphic art. During his career, Wirkkala participated in many international exhibitions, as well as being the artistic director of the University of Arts and Design in Helsinki for many years. He has won a large number of awards, including three gold medals at the Triennale in Milan in 1951, followed by another three in 1954.

"Rings, rings and rhythms. Whirls in a flow. Ever again - and a feeling of something, itself reflected and making reflected images. The movement of light - a moment that has passed. Already gone," -Tapio Wirkkala
