Tapio Wirkkala, Ultima Thule glassware for Iittala. Who would guess that this glass serie would be popular again? I always thought as a child that that was a clumpsy design, but today I can appreciate it more.
Ultima Thule is an extensive set of glasses reflecting the thousands of hours spent perfecting the glass-blowing technique required to produce the effect. The forms imitate nature and gradually change as the molten glass burns the surface of the moulds.
