Ultima Thule, Tapio Wirkkala (set of 2)


Ultima Thule, Tapio Wirkkala

Inspired by his love for Nordic nature, design pioneer Tapio Wirkkala defied the rules of glassblowing when he created Ultima Thule with Iittala in 1968.

Timo Sarpaneva and Tapio Wirkkala renewed Iittala’s glass design in the 1960’s by bringing a distinct, rough glass surface aesthetic to art and everyday glass.
