  • Q & A
In modern literature, Ultima Thule is used to reference the furthest possible place in the world. Tapio Wirkkala’s Ultima Thule glassware similarly references the icy cold reaches of Scandinaiva and the distinct expressive power of Finnish glass. Designed in 1968, Wirkkala’s Ultima Thule contributed to iittala’s national breakthrough and remains a distinctive iittala design.

The Ultima Thule footed tumbler has textured sides that reference the northern icy terrain of Scandinavia. The unique texture of the glass is created by a time-laboring technique that is created by the molten glass burning the surface of the wooden moulds.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1956 and inspired by his “i-line” range.

Timeless beauty
June 29, 2020
When shopping for new glassware, I came across these timeless, beautifully designed glasses. They were very familiar to me since my mother owned the very same ones when I was growing up. They are nostalgic and more lovely than I had originally remembered them. When making my selection, I learned that my fianc? who is Finnish, also grew up with the same glassware in his home! We admire the beauty of our table everyday and appreciate a bit of our past. I would highly recommend these glasses based on the design, quality and beauty.

With this purchase I completed my set of 6 Thule footed tumblers. I became enthralled with them when I flew in Business Class on FinnAir (they were used in the food and drinks service). In my opinion they embody the beauty and functionality of Nordic design.

Love the look of these glasses.
ProsThe look of the glass is elegant and very useful. I get complimented on their unique beauty. They are great ice breakers.

These glasses are so beautiful and look like they're made out of ice. They're lightweight, good quality, the perfect size and shape, and are very comfortable to hold. I bought 2 sets at regular price and decided to get 1 more at sale price. Great purchase! I highly recommend.
