Inspired by Melting Ice

Inspired by the melting ice in Lapland, Wirkkala originally created the surface in the 1960s after carving into a graphic mold. An exclusive design reflecting the thousands of hours spent perfecting the glass-blowing technique required to
produce the effect. The patterns gradually change as the glass burns the surface of the wooden molds.

Designed by a Glass Master

A versatile genius synonymous with Finnish design, Tapio Wirkkala’s contributions to the world of functional art include everything from elegant glassware to the design of banknotes.
