Year 2015 marked 100 years since the birth of Tapio Wirkkala. 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.
