Beautifully elegant Tapio vases in borosilicate glass, by Milan-based industrial and interior designer Giorgio Bonaguro – an homage to iconic Finnish designer and sculptor Tapio Wirkkala and his work with Venini manufacture’s Italian glass blowers.
About : “These vases follow my personal research on glass. Two of the most famous traditions in glass working are in Finland and in Italy, so this family of vases wants to pay an homage to the work of the master Tapio Wirkkala together with the work of Italian glass blowers. Wirkkala himself did a collection for the Italian manufacturer Venini: this was my inspiration so I tried to do a collection of vases with simple, archetypal shapes, but giving a modern taste “exaggerating” the heads and emphasizing with colors like metals.” — Giorgio Bonaguro
