The Finnish designer Tapio Wirkkala would have celebrated his 100th birthday in 2015. Iittala presents a re-edition of the classic Ovalis vase in order to do honour to the design icon.
The oval vases by Tapio Wirkkala were originally only produced from 1959 to 1966 and once again in the year 1977. The glass containers are coming back in a special edition in 2015 in the event of the 100th birthday of Wirkkala.
Re-edition of a classic piece
The Ovalis glass vase is mouth-blown according to an ancient tradition according to the highest quality standards. The re-edition of a classic piece emphasizes the visual character of the material distinctively. The anniversary vase isn’t only suitable to hold many flowers, but it also serves as independent piece of decoration.
There is something really special on this exclusive vase: it is delivered with a gravure suiting the anniversary of 2015. The fact that the 2015 edition of the design vase is going to become a classic piece as well is already sure.
