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. Complexity is rarely wise, yet it takes bravery and spirit to be simple.
Elegant yet durable enough for everyday use, the Kartio range features glasses, carafes and bowls, all of which are available in a variety of colours as well as clear glass.

The heart of Iittala's design philosophy is formulated along Kaj Franck's early thinking. According to Franck, "objects should always be appropriate, durable and functional." This is why one of the most important functions of design is to make sure that objects designed for everyday use should be universally usable.
Even earlier than Franck, Alvar Aalto made waves in the 1930s when the now iconic Aalto vase was first presented at the Paris World Exhibition. With this mysterious form he made a revolutionary statement against industrial production that failed to meet human needs.
The Iittala design philosophy defines the principles behind the product development. These principles include, in addition to pure functionalism, the qualities of essentialism and emotionalism, which ensures that all objects are both highly usable and that their design will remain relevant in the long-term. For 'lasting everyday design against throwawayism', we create eternally relevant and contemporary design that responds to universal human needs.
It is in the natural flow of things, however, that all objects will not last forever; they might break or colours and sizes in the assortment might change. But as all Iittala objects are designed to be combinable, even though all variations might not be offered all the time, any new purchases will still fit with existing and future Iittala objects. This allows you to build and refresh your own personal Iittala collection endlessly over time.
Less is more. Mies van der Rohe's legendary statement has become even more relevant to our planet today. Is it relevant to you? In that case, you might want to follow us and refuse throwawayism.
