Multi-talented genius Tapio Wirkkala was considered the pioneer of modern Finnish industrial art. Wirkkala’s greatest inspiration came from his native Finland. With his iconic Ultima Thule, the artist defied the rules of glassblowing. Inspired by an ice-covered Finnish island, Wirkkala spent nearly a thousand hours with the glassblowers at the Iittala Glass Factory, to recreate this unique slice of Nordic nature. The Ultima Thule plate pays homage to the iconic design with an intricate pattern that brings a piece of arctic nature that suits any table setting. Perfect for salads, starters or serving pastries and fruits. Works for casual or formal occasions. Combines beautifully with other pieces in the collection.
