KUKINTO

Timo Sarpaneva (1926-2006) was an international force in Finnish design. His homeland since the end of the Second World War had earned a reputation as a crucible of design. A designer, sculptor and educator, he descended from a long line of finish blacksmiths and he worked with metal, wood, textiles, ceramics and porcelain instilling his passion for the marriage of form and function. Although his training was as a graphic designer, he worked mainly as an industrial designer where his pioneering glass work merged art with utilitarian design. He has received much recognition throughout his illustrious career including the Lunning Prize and was twice awarded at the Milan Triennale. In 1976, Sarpaneva received the honorary title of Professor from the Finnish government.  His works are exhibited all over the world and are part of the collections of many important museums such as: the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and the Corning Museum of Glass. He began his collaboration with Venini in 1988.

Sarpaneva believed that glass was extreemly mysterious with its changing all the time. That’s what makes it magical together with the whole process while the glass-smiths apply flame, files and heavy iron scissors to the molten glass as they attempt to achieve the desired forms before it cools. Only a small window of time available in which to shape glass before it solidifies. Perhaps inevitably, after decades of wrestling with this constraint, Sarpaneva’s exploratory inclinations led him to often work with glass that had already set.

This bewitching Venini blown handmade glass vase, decorated with coloured bands, designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1991, features a straight body and funnel shaped neck in black, red, apple green, sapphire and crystal. The multi-coloured corolla of this northern flower, hand-blown by master glass makers, seems to wave gently in space. “Kukinto” is the Finnish word for fluorescence, and the bright vases really do make you think of colourful blossoms. Perfect object for indoor home decor as container or strong statement piece for any room.
