Legend Tapio Wirkkala’s internationally renowned glass designs were inspired by the raw beauty of his native Finland. Determined to recreate an ice-covered Finnish island where the sun never sets, 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, bringing a slice of Nordic nature to any interior. A dynamic mix of art and function, the classic Finnish glassware cemented its iconic status when Finnair began using it in first class. The Ultima Thule on-the-rocks is perfect for spirits, cocktails, water or juice.
