ultima thule cordial set

Designed by Tapio Wirkkala in 1968. Ultima Thule is inspired by the melting ice in Lapland. An exclusive design reflecting the thousands of hours spent perfecting the glass-blowing technique required to produce the effect. The patterns gradually change as the glass burns the surface of the wooden moulds.

2015 marks 100 years since the birth of Tapio Wirkkala. To honour the great designer, Iittala is highlighting some of Wirkkala’s designs. The schnapps glass set includes four schnapps glasses by Wirkkala, one from each decade. The limited-edition centenary gift set includes Tapio (1954), Ultima Thule (1968), Niva (1972) and Kaleva (1980) glasses.
