About the Item

Tapio Wirkkala, Two Sizes Crystal Art-Object Model 3121, Iittala Finland c. 1958 Artist Tapio Wirkkala (1915 Hanko, Finland - 1985 Helsinki, Finland) A giant of Finnish design, Wirkkala was an artist of great diversity for whom no material was alien and who left no area of design unexplored. A glass design competition held by the Iittala glassworks in 1946 was the event that set his career in motion; the first prize went jointly to Wirkkala and Kaj Franck. With an oeuvre that ranges from exceptionally beautiful pieces of glass art to Industrial Design in the form of beer bottles and banknotes, Wirkkala also designed jewellery, sculptures, and furniture. The recipient of many awards, honorary titles, and a doctorate, Wirkkala won three Grand Prix medals at the Milan Triennale in 1954 and an additional Grand Prix medal and Gold Medal at the Milan Triennale in 1960. Description Two turned-mold blown crystal Art-objects, model 3121. The air bubble was made with a wet wooden stick and the exterior was line cut. This model was designed by Tapio Wirkkala in 1956 and remained in production at the Iittala glassworks between 1956 and 1958. The model was produced in three different sizes (5 cm, 7.5 cm and 13.5 cm) and this pair consists of the medium and the largest size produced.
