Tapio Wirkkala

Museo del Vetro - Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia

Description

A major exhibition at the Museo del Vetro di Murano is dedicated to the production of Tapio Wirkkala (1915-1985), and pays homage to the Finnish designer who was one of the first to bring the new Scandinavian linguistic code the world’s attention. Linked to Venice, to the Murano glassworks and to Venini in particular, Wirkkala was a designer, graphic designer and sculptor of wood: glass was always at the centre of his work from the outset, but his genius worked with the most diverse materials and he created unique or industrial objects for the most varied use, always going through all the production phases, from design to production. In the Murano exhibition two sides to the artist are identified: that linked to the transparency of glass and its material form, deeply connected with Finnish nature, and the other colourful one connected to the artistic and executive virtuosity of Murano.

 

Curated by Harri Koskinen, Marco Romanelli, Chiara Squarcina, In collaboration with Tapio Wirkkala Rut Bryk Foundation, EMMA Espoo Museum of Modern Art.

 

The exhibition will be open until September 29th, every day from 10.30am to 6pm.
