Multi-talented genius Tapio Wirkkala was considered the pioneer of modern Finnish industrial art. With his iconic Ultima Thule, the artist defied the rules of glassblowing. Inspired by an ice-covered Finnish island, Wirkkala spent nearly a thousand hours with the glassblowers at the Iittala Glass Factory, to recreate this unique slice of Nordic nature. Featuring a round base supported by three ice peaks that float above the surface, the groundbreaking Ultima Thule collection brings a piece of arctic nature into any interior. The Ultima Thule beer glass is a dynamic combination of art and function. Glassware creates striking impact and keeps beverages cold. Stunning gift.
