Wirkkala Bottles by Iittala

 These bottles, designed by Tapio Wirkkala in 1959, 
have been relaunched by Iittala in 2015 on the occasion of Wirkkala´s 100th birthday in a limited number of 2015 pieces.



Also designed in this period and produced by Holmegaard in Denmark, 
the gulvases had been copied some years ago 
in the course of the mid-century-hype.
These three vases are originals and were affordable flea market finds.
