Ultima Thule, 3Pc Set, Rain
Designer: Tappio Wirkala (1968)
Country of Origin: Finland
Why is it Special?
Legend Tapio Wirkkala’s greatest inspiration came from his homeland of Finland. With his iconic Ultima Thule, the artist defied the rules of glassblowing. Inspired by an ice-covered Finnish island, Wirkkala spent nearly a thousand hours with the glassblowers at the Iittala Glass Factory, to recreate this unique slice of Nordic nature.
Characterised by a rounded base supported by three ice peaks that float above the surface, the groundbreaking Ultima Thule collection brings a piece of arctic nature into any interior. A dynamic mix of art and function, the Ultima Thule Old Fashioned set includes two mouthblown glasses and an elegant pitcher. Perfect for serving spirits. Rain adds stunning detail.
