Ultima Thule (a mythological island in the ultimate north) features a surface design that resembles melting ice with water drops on the bottom. Ultima Thule is probably Finland's most iconic glass tableware series.
Iittala Ultima Thule is made from clear mould-pressed glass. Designer Tapio Wirkkala personally hand carved the original moulds from wood. It is thanks to the Ultima Thule series that the Iittala glass company achieved international success. You may recognise the series from Finnair flights or the Finlandia vodka bottle.
Holding this Nordic vintage design glass series in your hands is a unique experience of Lappland's winter. Treasure your own piece of eternal ice that never melts.
Ultima Thule was inspired by an ancient myth of a hidden paradise island in the Arctic North. It symbolizes eternity and happiness, which makes it an excellent gift choice for weddings, birthdays and other extra special occasions.
