Tapio Wirkkala

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.

Since 1881, Iittala has been dedicated to inspiring better living. What began as a glass factory in a small village in Iittala, Finland has grown into an internationally known brand that has played a decisive role in defining the Nordic way of life. The cornerstones of Iittala’s design are timeless aesthetics, high quality and functionality. We believe people should have the right to expect their design items to last a lifetime and that Iittala items never go out of style. Our designs are made to be used, day in and day out, for generations to come.
