Wirkkala was often inspired by nature. His work is characterized by its wide scope and exceptional craftsmanship, and he has in fact been compared to the master craftsmen of the past.
Wirkkala drew a great deal, but he also wanted to study personally the various stages of making objects, such as glassblowing: "I always try to be involved in the whole working process in which the object achieves its final shape".
The majority of the approximately 100 lamps Wirkkala designed for serial production were conceived between 1959 and 1961. The earliest, however, is the Triennale light from 1951. The conical piece is a turn-moulded opalescent glass pendant, which was originally made for the Finnish Pavilion at the Milan Triennale.

Designed by Yrjö Kukkapuro, the Karuselli is one of the most famous lounge chairs in the world. Kukkapuro began developing the fibreglass chair in the 1950s, arriving at the famous shape in 1964. The international launch of the chair took place at the Cologne Furniture Fair in 1965.
The shape of the Karuselli chair is the result of extensive experimentation. Kukkapuro spent four years sculpting it – searching for the right dimensions, initially using his own body as a guide. Karuselli is exceptionally comfortable as well as stylistically distinctive precisely because it is ergonomically based on the shape and proportions of the human body. As a result of his persistent efforts, Kukkapuro finally arrived at a form that represented a novel combination of ergonomics, new materials and production methods, as well as artistic design. It was this combination of qualities that made Karuselli a revolutionary chair in its time.
Ever since its first launch, Karuselli has caught the eye, captured the imagination and has given pleasure to those sitting in it.
