Ultima Thule Tealight Candleholder


Design  Tapio Wirkkala, 1968
Mouth-blown Glass
Made in Finland by iittala

Legend Tapio Wirkkala’s greatest inspiration came from his native Finland. With his iconic Ultima Thule, the artist defied the rules of glassblowing. Inspired by an ice-covered Finnish island, Wirkkala spent nearly a thousand hours with the glassblowers at the Iittala Glass Factory, to recreate this unique slice of Nordic nature. Characterised by a rounded base supported by three ice peaks that float above the surface, the groundbreaking Ultima Thule collection brings a piece of arctic nature into any interior. The striking design of the grey Ultima Thule tealight candleholder adds a soft glow that creates warm ambience. Stunning alone or grouped in a collection. A perfect gift.
