Exhibition held at the Finnish Glass Museum, 2007

The Venini glassworks on the island of Murano in Venice is an outright symbol of new Venetian glass. After the Milan Triennial exhibitions during the 1950s and the intervening decades, the Finnish designers Tapio Wirkkala (1915-1985) and Timo Sarpaneva (1926-2006), the masters of the golden age of Finnish Design, are now on show together, in addition to Harri Koskinen (b. 1970), the international ambassador of contemporary Finnish Design.

Tapio Wirkkala began to design glass for Venini around the middle of the 1960s. Timo Sarpaneva&s work at Venini in 1989-1990 included not only experimentation and colours but also techniques not available in Iittala glassworks in Finland. Harri Koskinen&s collaboration with Venini began in 1999.
