Glasses inspired by glaciers

The drinking glasses of the Ultima Thule series were designed in 1968 by Tapio Wirkkala. Today, Iittala's classic glasses are real witnesses of their era.

Ultima Thule is a collection of glasses that show the long and hard work involved in the perfection of glass working technique. The unique effect of the glasses and their appearance imitate nature: Tapio Wirkkala was inspired by the design of the ice melting glacier in Lapland. Hence the name Ultima Thule, because this is the name of the northernmost land point of the world.

Today, Ultima Thule drinking glasses are considered classics. The series played a major role in Iittala's international breakthrough. The finely crafted collection shows the distinct power of Finnish glass work. The shapes of Iittala glasses vary from piece to piece, depending on how the liquid glass surrounds the wooden models during production.

My favorite glasses. Top processed, a real eye-catcher and lie beautifully heavy in the hand. Iittala just now. I also bought the matching bowl later.

Timeless design

We already have some glasses of the series, now also the champagne glasses. I especially like the extraordinary design without handle. The glasses are very robust, even after many (hand) washing cycles and frequent use they are still flawless.

Iittala Ultima Thule - Timeless Classic

5 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Iittala - Ultima thule whisky glass 28 cl

Automatically translated from German

You don't have to say much more about the Ultima Thule series from Iittala. Another timeless classic of Finnish design! The whisky glasses fit (as expected) perfectly to the other parts of the series. So far every guest has been completely enthusiastic about the Ultima Thule series!

Design for guests, or even every day...

5 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Iittala - Ultima thule shot glass 5 cl

Automatically translated from German

We own some models of the series. Addiction started with the shot glasses. I bought the first ones second-hand. The design is still the same, the glasses fit together perfectly. The new glasses are only made of a thicker layer of glass, which makes them even more stable. I'm a big fan of the Ultima Thule series, now own glasses for all occasions. They have put away several (hand) washing cycles so far well, the glasses are not sensitive.

Also an eye-catcher as water glass

4 of 5 stars 2019-04-25, , Iittala - Ultima thule beer glass 38 cl

We already have the water glasses from the series, but now we mainly use them, because they are simply an eye-catcher, which is a little heavy in the hand, but feels very good.

something different

1 of 1 customers have found this review helpful.

Automatically translated from German

The design is eye-catching, slightly retro, but still fits in well with modern designs. The glasses are top-quality and also stable, you don't have to treat them too carefully. The drinks really look like if they were trapped in ice due to the irregular pattern in the glass, very great effect that fascinates every time again.

The melting ice of Lapland

5 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Iittala - Ultima thule whisky glass 28 cl
1 of 1 customers have found this review helpful.

Automatically translated from German

The fact that the glass should remind of the melting ice of Lapland has been realized here magnificently. The step from inspiration to form is clearly visible here. However, this was not at the expense of the function. Two wonderful glasses in which the whiskey shines through like sunshine through melting ice. Top.

Great (red) wine glass

5 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Iittala - Red ultima thule wine glass with foot 23cl
1 of 1 customers have found this review helpful.

Automatically translated from German

We own some glasses of the series. The red wine glass is not as big as one is used to from red wine glasses. We therefore also use it as a white wine glass. The glass is quite heavy due to the massive foot, but this makes it stable and therefore more resistant than red wine glasses with a long stem. Even after many (hand) washing cycles, the glasses are impeccable.

great glass design - also for long drinks

The design is eye-catching, slightly retro, but still fits in well with modern designs. The glasses are top-quality and also stable, you don't have to treat them too carefully. I also use the beer glass for long drinks. But those who like to poke around in the glass on their lemon should be warned: the stand is not very stable due to the three glass drops that form the storage surface. This is only true if you can't leave the glass like me alone.
