Ultima Thule pitcher, 50cl - des. Tapio Wirkkala, 1968 for Iittala


By: Iittala

This is so wonderful - and indeed, its design catalysed by a sense of wonder. Inspired by the melting ice in Lapland, designer Tapio Wirkkala spent thousands of hours with the glassblowers at the Iittala Glass Factory, to recreate this unique slice of Nordic nature.

With the Ultima Thule, Wirkkala defied the rules of glassblowing.  The elegant Ultima Thule pitcher was designed to commemorate the designer's 100th birthday. Characterised by a rounded base supported by three ice peaks that float above the surface, this groundbreaking piece brings arctic nature to your table - a stunning way to serve cold drinks.
