IITTALA TAPIO RED WINE, SET OF 2 Designer: Tapio Wirkkala for Iittala, 1952
Floating on air. Tapio Wirkkala's style is considered to be synonymous with
Finnish design. Using his mastery of glass-blowing methods, he captured a
single air bubble inside the heavy stem of the Tapio glasses. The bubble
now represents the unique, distinctive style, which has become his
trademark. Tapio glassware received the Grand Prix Award at the Milan
Triennale in 1954.

IITTALA DESIGN PHILOSOPHY:
The core idea behind Iittala is to offer aesthetically and functionally durable products that bring enjoyment and pleasure to everyday life, whether it is about dining, creating a mood or storing small items at home.
All Iittala objects are thought through in form, function and quality. All aim to achieve long-lasting everyday use and inspiration. Iittala objects are designed to be combined, with different designs across series, as well as with existing home environments.
The belief of Iittala is that people have the right to expect the design they buy to last a lifetime. They see that the world is becoming more and more aware of the value of long-lasting design.
Iittala believes quality never goes out of fashion. The effort put into quality design has paid off: the Iittala collection includes not only new design but also items that have been around for more than 80 years.
