Iittala Ultima Thule 56oz Serving Bowl by Tapio Wirkkala

$95

About the Item

Tapio Wirkkala was considered the pioneer of modern Finnish industrial art. Internationally recognized for his glass designs, Wirkkala’s greatest inspiration always came from his native Finland. Wirkkala defied the rules of glassblowing with his iconic Ultima Thule collection. Inspired by ice and snow, Wirkkala spent nearly a thousand hours with the glassblowers at the Iittala Glass Factory, to recreate this unique slice of Nordic nature. Featuring a rounded base supported by three ice peaks that float above the surface, the groundbreaking Ultima Thule brings a piece of arctic nature into any interior. The Ultima Thule bowl creates a striking impact on any table setting. Perfect for cold dishes like salad or dessert. Designer: Tapio Wirkkala Manufacturer: Iittala Year: 1960s Style: Mid-Century Modern / Scandinavian Dimensions: 3.5'' tall x 7.9" diameter.
