Iittala Ultima Thule bowl
Estimated date of return:
Inspired by the melting ice in Lapland, Finland, Tapio Wirkkala originally created the surface of Ultima Thule in the 1960s after carving into a graphic mould. Its exclusive design reflects the thousands of hours spent perfecting the glass-blowing technique required to produce its effect. Patterns progressively change as the glass burns the casing of the wooden moulds.
