  • Q & A
A special edition bowl in Tapio Wirkkala’s celebrated Ultima Thule series is not only ideal for serving salads or holding fruit but a wonderful way to honor the designer who was born a century ago. Still loved for the unique story it tells with glass as a medium, Ultima Thule is a classic literature reference to the furthest possible place and pays homage to the icy beauty of the Finnish landscape. The unique melting texture of the glass is achieved through a specialize mold, the first of which was made by Wirkkala himself. Though a break from the typical clean-lined nature of Nordic design, the extraordinary collection gained popularity after being used on the Finnairs’ first flights between Helsinki and New York. Iittala Ultima Thule is still loved today by modern and traditional enthusiast for its timeless quality and charm.

I have been building up my collection of the Ultima Thule line and bought 2 of these bowls for myself and 2 as gifts.
  • Just the right size and functional like most of the Iittala line.
  • As usual I can depend on FinnStyle for excellent service.

Iittala glass, whether it's their glass birds, candles, or bowls (such as the three I purchased) never disappoints. The quality is always first rate and stylish. Finn Style was prompt in processing my online order and the package arrived as guaranteed.
