Ultima Thule glassware by Tapio Wirkkala (new and vintage)
Designer: Tapio Wirkkala
On the coffee table in tech billionaire Lukas Matsson’s (Alexander Skarsgård) Norway cabin in Succession we spy Ultima Thule glassware by Tapio Wirkkala: An Ultima Thule carafe and two tumbler glasses.
Inspired by the melting ice in Lapland, the Ultima Thule glassware by Tapio Wirkkala is the design legend’s most famous work. Wirkkala originally created the surface of Ultima Thule in the 1960s after carving into a graphic mold. Ultima Thule is an exclusive design which reflects the thousands of hours spent perfecting the glass-blowing technique required to produce the effect.
This glassware range has a rounded base with three ice peaks that float above the surface and bring a slice of arctic nature to your home.
