Edited by curator Marco Romanelli, this catalogue is published in conjunction with the exhibition ‘Tapio Wirkkala’ at the Murano Museum of Glass. Wirkkala, for whom glass was a fundamental material, is often regarded as one of the greatest designers of the 20th century. The book traces the artistic evolution of this Finnish innovator during his Venetian period, where he expanded his freedom of colour and learned techniques such as incalmo. Over the years, Wirkkala has demonstrated the elegance of his formal research and also his debt to his native land, expressed in his choice of material and forms which maintained a strong identity, and values to which he always remained faithful.
