Ultima Thule

Inspired by the melting ice in Northern Finland, Tapio Wirkkala created Ultima Thule in a deeply remote cottage in Lapland in the 1960s. The mid-sized Ultima Thule glass serving bowl with its distinctive and intricate bottom that imitates the ebb and flow of melting ice can be used to serve, for example, nuts, chocolates and sweets.

Tapio Wirkkala (1915-1985) was a multitalented design genius, widely considered a leading figure of modern Finnish industrial art
