Adding intrigue to your breakfast or dinner table, the bubbling pattern of the Pore glass by Nuutajärven lasi is sure to start up a conversation. Developed by the renowned Finnish designer Gunnel Nyman in 1947, the Pore series drinking glass has become a timeless classic that brightens up any setting.

Distinctive, bold and expressive – Iittala’s Ultima Thule glassware range is without a doubt an integral part of Finnish glass design history. Created in 1968 by Tapio Wirkkala, Ultima Thule was inspired by the raw beauty of Finnish nature and particularly melting ice in Lapland. The captivating surface of the Ultima Thule drinkware collection is the result of relentless work, as Wirkkala and the glassblowers at the Iittala Glass Factory spent nearly a thousand hours to perfect the technique. Fusing relentless innovation and influences from pure Nordic nature, Wirkkala’s iconic Ultima Thule can be found in many modern homes – as well as in Finnair’s business class table setting.
