The iittala Kartio glassware, designed by Kaj Franck in 1958, is the perfect marriage of color and form. Internationally appreciated for its durable, simple and practical shape and function, the ittala Kartio line was one of Franck's internationally best known works.

I have a set of the medium Kartio tumblers in light blue and now have some large tumblers. I love the way they capture the light. And most liquids look wonderful in them.

These tumblers are corporate glassware for everyone's use. We love the weight, style and especially the light blue color. They're a perfect match with the porcelain dishes and napkins by iittala. Combined pieces make a wonderful table presentation for our catered events. Perfect.

I purchased the Kartio glasses as companions for my recently purchased Teema china so that I could have a "pure" design experience. I am very happy with the simple line and the clarity of the glassware. I was apprehensive of adding color to the glassware (I usually opt for clear), but the Kartio colors are very appealing and add a touch of uniqueness to the eating experience. All of the Iittala Finnish products I have ordered (sight unseen) have been simply remarkable...I love them all!!!
ProsHigh quality standards are evident in every product Iittala manufactures, and these Kartio glasses are no exception. From concept, design and production, the products are beautiful.
