The life's work of Rut Bryk (1916–1999) and Tapio Wirkkala (1915–1985) is entrusted to the care of the Tapio Wirkkala Rut Bryk Foundation, established in 2003. The foundation, City of Espoo and EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modern Art have signed an agreement according to which EMMA manages over 5,000 objects owned by the foundation, including works of art, design objects, prototypes and archive material.
The collection is both rare and internationally significant. The design legacy of the world-renowned artist-designer couple will open up in an even more diverse way when the new design space is launched in EMMA in November 2017. EMMA will display the collection permanently in exhibition centre WeeGee, Tapiola, Espoo.
At this moment there is a possibility to view the cross-section of the collection in the Wirkkala Cabinet, located on the ground floor WeeGee building, free of charge.
