What began in 1881 as a little glass factory in Iittala, Finland, has
now become one of the most celebrated glassware names in the world;
celebrated for Scandinavian design integral to a timeless look and aura.
Named for its its Finnish homeland, iittala believe that objects should be distinctive, combinable and
multi-functional, with lasting design that allows for individual use and
expression. So when Finnish designer Kaj Franck set out to make the
perfect glass, he began by contemplating the hand which has to hold it.
This insight into the feel of the glass – not just the look – is what gives the Kartio Carafe its timeless elegance.
It took courage and spirit for Kaj to produce the simplest possible
glass. Especially back in 1958. And that’s why the Kartio Tumbler
remains to this day a true design classic.
Kartio Carafe features:
Made in Finland from glass.
Designed by Kaj Franck.
Pouring spout and hourglass-shaped body for easy pouring.
