Multi-talented genius Tapio Wirkkala greatest inspiration came from his native Finland. 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. A dynamic mix of art and function, the classic Finnish drinkware cemented its iconic status when Finnair began using it in first class. The Ultima Thule highball is perfect for serving cocktails.
