Icon: Tapio Wirkkala

X-frame table, 1958 Bolle Bottles, 1968
Tapio Wirkkala is one of my favorite designers for sure. He had a great sensibility between hand craft and mass production. His objects are so simple, reflecting nature and technology simultaneously. He looks like Santa and used to whittle knife handles in the Finnish woods... Pretty much my dream.
