Tapio Vase Collection by Giorgio Bonaguro for Serax
Updated: Jan 28
Tapio Vase Collection follow Bonaguro's 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 be a 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; so this became the inspiration for Bonaguro to try to do a collection of vases with simple, archetypal shapes, but giving a modern taste, exaggerating the heads and emphasizing on colors to make it look like metal.
