  • Q & A
2015 marks the a century since Tapio Wirkkala’s birth, and this set of two dewdrop-kissed plates is the perfect commemoration and celebration of his life and works. In classic literature, Ultima Thule is used to reference the furthest possible place in the world. The 1968 Ultima Thule Glassware similarly references the icy cold reaches of Scandinavia and the distinct expressive power of glass as a medium. The unique melting texture of these pieces are achieved through specialized molds, the first of which were 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 Finnair’s first flights between Helsinki and New York. Iittala Ultima Thule is still loved today by modern and traditional enthusiasts for its timeless quality and charm.

These plates are a work of art. I have bought one to give away and two to keep that compliment the Ultima Thule glasses I have.

The ultima Thule plates are my favorite. I have purchased 4 first, and gradually adding some more as they are not necessarily inexpensive. But for me it is worth the price, I love every aspect about this and they are gorgeous. It is a bit heavier than usual glass probably but that gives a sturdy feeling.
