kartio 13.5oz. glass tumbler 2 pack

Design Kaj Franck, 1958
Made in Finland by Iittala

Constant simplicity. Creating the perfect glass starts with the hand that has to hold it, and with questions about what that hand would prefer to hold.

Attempts have been made to copy Franck by applying his rational geometry to new designs. These attempts have failed, because they haven't taken into account the living spirit and wisdom that are required, to give thought to simple things. Complex is rarely wise, yet it takes bravery and spirit to be simple.

Elegant yet durable enough for everyday use, the Kartio range features glasses and carafes, all of which are available in a variety of colors as well as clear glass.

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. 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.
