Together for 46 years
Today marks the centennial of Finnish designer and master sculptor Tapio Wirkkala, born on this day in 1915. Here is a photo retrospective of his work with Finnair.
Wirkkala’s work has been a part of Finnair for 46 years, ever since we started flying to New York in 1969. That was when travellers first came to know the feeling of a certain distinctive, glittering icicle-like ridged glassware against their palm – Ultima Thule, a classic of Finnish design. This glassware has enchanted our passengers throughout the decades ever since – and long may it continue to accompany you on your adventures.
