Kaj Franck

Kaj Franck of Vyborg, Finland (1911-1989) is perhaps best know for his Kartio glassware series or his Teema tableware, but also worked as an interior designer, decorator, and textile designer. The Kartio series, which was made for the Iittala company, was a distillation of Franck’s belief that a product must be practical, durable, functional, and even easy to clean. The Teema series was based on the circle, square, and cone. Sometimes described as the conscience of Finnish design, he left only the essentials in his work until each was a product of constant simplicity.
What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, now celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people’s everyday lives. Iittala believes objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that allows for individual use and expression. The progressive philosophy of design heroes, Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto, still inspires to keep Iittala forever relevant. Iittala creates beautiful objects... timeless design that will never be thrown away.
