Tapio Wirkkala

Genius Tapio Wirkkala’s renowned glass designs were often inspired by the raw beauty of his native Finland. Wirkkala’s cottage in remote Lapland was so isolated that Iittala helicoptered supplies in. Determined to recreate a beloved ice-covered Finnish island, Wirkkala spent nearly a thousand hours with the glassblowers at the Iittala Glass Factory, defying the rules of glassblowing. Ultima Thule’s iconic design features a rounded base supported by three ice peaks that float above the surface, allowing one to bring a slice of Nordic nature to any interior. The Ultima Thule bowl is perfect for nuts, candies, condiments or desserts. Special rain colour commemorated Ultima Thule’s 50th anniversary. Perfect gift.
