The Kartio drinking glass series was designed by the Kaj Franck for the Finnish design manufacturer Iittala in 1958 and it bribes with constant simplicity:
”Creating the perfect glass, starts with the hands that is going to hold it. Ask yourself what a glass the hand might want 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, required to give thought to simple things. Complexity is rarely wise, yet it takes bravery and spirit to be simple.
The Kartio series is elegant, but still resistant enough to be used every day. It includes glasses, carafes and bowls which are all available in different colours as well as in clear glass in here.
