Designer: Kartio Kaj Franck
In Kartio Kaj Franck captured the perfect balance between material and geometric form. Simple, yet durable enough for everyday use, Franck mastered the creation of the basic drinking glass, which is a legendary design beyond any trend. The wide and versatile color palette of Kartio perfectly represents Iittala’s knowledge of colored glass.
Known as the conscience of Finnish design, Kaj Franck’s vision demanded the removal of everything excessive, leaving only the essential. Kaj Franck has been awarded a large number of Finnish and international awards and prizes, and his work has been displayed at a variety of design museums around the world.
