About the DesignerKaj Franck
Finland (1911 - 1989)
Born in Vyborg, Finland, Kaj Franck is described as the conscience of Finnish design. He removed everything excessive in his designs, leaving only the essentials. Kaj Franck has been awarded a large number of Finnish and international awards and prizes and his work has been displayed at a range of design museums around the world. Some of his most famous objects are the teema tableware and the glass series kartio.
This glass needs little introduction. If you think you recognize it, it's because you do. Kartio is the archetypal image of a glass. Durable enough for everyday use, the Kartio range features glasses, carafes and bowls all in several pure glass shades. The simple shapes fit beautifully with iittala's Teema dinnerware, but as classic water classes they complement any table setting with timeless elegance. Features:
- Tumblers sold in sets of two
- Carafe features hand-pulled lip
- Non-leaded crystal
- Dishwasher safe
- Please Note: Due to the nature of hand-blown glass, actual color may vary slightly from the colors pictured
