Pitcher 50cl recycled

Recycled

Tapio Wirkkala's Ultima Thule is a timeless masterpiece of Finnish glass design, capturing the beauty and rawness of the Nordic wilderness. Inspired by the endless winter landscapes of the North, Ultima Thule's unique surface texture resembles ice melting in the spring sun. The iconic 50cl Ultima Thule decanter is now available in a sustainable and environmentally conscious version made of recycled waste glass generated during the manufacturing of other Iittala objects at the facotry. It is a perfect addition to any home or dining table, adding a touch of character. Due to the nature of the production process, the colour of the decanter may vary slightly between batches, adding to its charm and uniqueness.

Iittala's designer Tapio Wirkkala

Tapio Wirkkala

Tapio Wirkkala (1915-1985) was a multitalented design genius, widely considered a leading figure of modern Finnish industrial art. Wirkkala's wide ranging portfolio spans from glass, furniture and product design to sculpture, city planning, art, graphics and even creating banknotes for the Finnish treasury. As his reputation grew internationally, Wirkala exhibited throughout the world but he was a recluse by nature. His favorite place was a spot so remote within the deep woodlands of middle Finland that helicopters delivered prototypes to his hut since no car could reach him. It was in nature that he found his much loved solitude and the inspiration for forms that industry could produce or artwork could create. Throughout his incredibly productive career, Wirkkala received numerous awards including three gold medals at the Milan Triennale, the Lunning Prize, Pro Finlandia Medal and the Prince Eugen Medal. Wirkkala has designed a range of home products for Iittala with his Chanterelle, Gaissa, Ultima Thule and Tapio Collections.
