  • Wirkkala designed a significant proportion of his work for Iittala—the most famous being Ultima Thule. Inspired by the melting ice in Lapland, Wirkkala originally created the surface of Ultima Thule in the 1960s after carving into a graphic mould. 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.
    Tapio WirkkalaBorn in Hanko, Tapio Wirkkala (1915-1985) was a multi-talented and ingenious designer. Wirkkala's design work ranged from glass design and sculpture to banknote design and graphics. He is considered one of the leading figures in the Finnish modern art industry. During his active career, Tapio Wirkkala participated in international exhibitions and served as the artistic director of the University of Art and Design Helsinki for several years. He was awarded numerous awards, including three gold medals at the Milan International Triennial in both 1951 and 1954. The glass objects designed by Tapio Wirkkala for Iittala are his best-known production. The glass series Ultima Thule and Tapio have maintained their popularity for decades.
