Iittala Tapio Wirkkala 1952 Wine Glasses – Set of 2


What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, today celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people’s everyday lives. Iittala believes objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that inspires individual use and expression.

The progressive philosophy of design heroes, Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto, still inspires to keep Iittala forever relevant. They believe in timeless design that will never be thrown away.

Tapio Wirkkala was a multi-talented design genius. His vast portfolio spans from furniture, product design to creating banknotes for Finnish treasury. But glass held a special significance for Wirkkala. He made his international breakthrough as a glass designer when he received three gold medals at the Milan Triennale. Wirkkala’s glass art is displayed throughout the world including New York’s Museum of Modern Art and Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

Versatile and functional, the mouthblown two piece Tapio  wine set features the designer’s unique ‘stick blowing’ technique. The stunning silhouette is showcased by a single air bubble suspended in the stem. A striking detail on any table.
