Iittala Kartio

Tumbler 21cl calluna 2pc

Kaj Franck is one of the greats of Finnish design. His designs are based on clarity and purpose. His Kartio series is a good example of a balance between form and function. Kaj Franck wanted to create durable and practical pieces of high quality. For Franck, colour was a decoration needed to complement the form of a piece. A new colour has now been added to the broad Kartio colour scheme: calluna. The Kartio tumbler (21 cl) in calluna brings warmth and an element of nature to your table setting. The versatile Kartio tumbler is designed for everyday use, but its simple and stylish form also makes it an impressive part of a special occasion. A set includes two tumblers (21 cl). All Kartio tumblers are made in Finland. The tumblers are dishwasher-safe.

Kartio

Known as the conscience of Finnish design, Kaj Frank sought to remove excess in his work leaving only the essentials. In 1958, Franck realized his goal with the Kartio glass, which 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 colour palette of Kartio perfectly represents Iittala’s knowledge of coloured glass.

Iittala's designer Kaj Franck

Kaj Franck

Kaj Franck (1911-1989) is known as the “conscience of Finnish design.” Franck grew up in a world with elaborate dining services to sparse stone dishes. During his significant career, Franck asserted himself between the two extremes and profoundly changed our understanding of tableware. He utilized serial production to produce versatile, practical dishware at a reasonable price. Besides social consciousness, Franck’s distinct career was guided by the desire to seek the essential. He studied basic forms endlessly with special focus on proportions.

Franck has designed a range of tableware products for Iittala with his Teema Collection, Kartio Collection and Scandia Collection.
