Overview

Design by Tapio Wirkkala, 1968.
Made in Finland by Iittala.

Inspired by the melting ice in Lapland, designer Tapio Wirkkala originally created the textured surface of Ultima Thule in the 1960s, after carving into a graphic mold. This exclusive design reflects thousands of hours spent perfecting the glass-blowing technique required to produce the effect. Each piece of the Ultima Thule collection features a sophisticated, intriguing pattern that evolved organically during production as the glass burned the surface of the wooden molds.

Designed for everyday enjoyment, the Ultima Thule Old-Fashioned Glass is dishwasher safe. Sold in sets of 2.

Iittala

Manufacturer: Iittala

iittala: Timeless design since 1881.

In the early years of modernism and functionalism, during the 1930s and 40s, pioneers like Alvar Aalto and Kaj Franck led the development of the Iittala brand. Their belief was that objects should always be designed with a thought, essential and above all, available to all. It was their thinking that set the foundation for the Iittala design philosophy — to push the boundaries and to give people beauty and function.

Iittala strives to create icons that will last a lifetime. What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, now celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people's everyday lives. More than just beautiful objects, Iittala creates timeless designs that will never be thrown away.
