Kartio

Known as the conscience of Finnish design, Kaj Frank sought to remove excess in his work leaving only the essentials.

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.
