Tapio Wirkkala designed the Paperbag porcelain vase for Rosenthal in 1977 and today the Paperbag is one of the best selling articles of Rosenthal. Wirkkala's design of the Paperbag vase reflects his artistic gaze to the world, to find the poetry of everyday life. It also represents his humorous contribution to the 1960s Pop Art movement. Wirkkala’s crumbled Paperbag is a gorgeous eyecatcher which displays a cunning use of subject and material. The vase is unique in that it captures the fragile creases of a paper bag in a sturdier material, so its transient beauty can be enjoyed every day. Display it on its own, or use it to showcase a beautiful selection of flowers; no matter how you use it, it will surely look beautiful.
