Ultima Thule
Inspired by the melting ice in Lapland, the Ultima Thule is design legend Tapio Wirkkala’s most famous work. Wirkkala originally created the surface of Ultima Thule in the 1960s after carving into a graphic mold. Ultima Thule is an exclusive design which reflects the thousands of hours spent perfecting the glass-blowing technique required to produce the effect.

Tapio Wirkkala

Legend Tapio Wirkkala’s portfolio spans from furniture and banknotes to glass. With his iconic Ultima Thule, the artist defied the rules of glassblowing. Inspired by ice and snow, Wirkkala spent nearly a thousand hours with the glassblowers at the Iittala Glass Factory, to recreate this unique slice of Nordic nature. Featuring a rounded base sitting on three ice peaks that float above the surface, Ultima Thule 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 4pc cordial set is perfect for after dinner liquors.

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.
