It is no small feat to pare a design down to its most basic form and still interject a distinctive styling. See how Kaj Franck, the conscience of finnish design, manages to accomplish just that with his beautiful kartio series of tumblers.
Kartio is one of the finest examples of Kaj Franck's (1911-1989) design and of the subject matter that continually fascinated himthe basic drinking glass. When designing Kaj shed all things unnecessary and superfluous. The timeless Kartio stuns with its pure geometric shape and glorious colors. Kaj Franck received numerous Finnsh and international awards and prizes. His work is on display at design museums the world over. The Teema tableware range and Kartio glasses are among Kaj Franck's most famous items.
