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. Real beauty, Frank maintained, could only be found in the practicality of use.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1956 and inspired by his “i-line” range. The logo serves as a symbol of quality craftsmanship, timeless design, and thoughtful functionality. Many collectors ... More iittala

Kaj Franck

Born in Finland in the early 1900’s, designer Kaj Franck preferred deconstructed design and valued usability as it directly related to beauty. In removing excessive elements, his simplistic designs are comfortable and easily palatable for home use. Franck’s hauntingly beautiful Kartio Glass... More Kaj Franck

Emerald and sea blue looked the same!
I got a pair of each as a present for a friend but when the came the colors of the glasses looked almost identical and not at all like your pictures. It’s weird. I love the glasses and got cobalt blue ones in Finland some years ago but the colors didn’t seem right now, the emerald green looked more like dark olive. Nd the sea blue was green not blue!

Beautiful and be careful
I have both gray and sea blue. They are gorgeous, solid, like all the other reviewers said. I love that. I’ve also had a number of my gray ones crack, and not because we dropped them. We likely received a bad batch, and we were sent new ones, but continue to have issues with the gray ones, even from the new ones. We do put them in the dishwasher in the top. I would like more because they are so beautiful, but I am hesitant because they are daily use glasses and more delicate than I expected.

Perfect Every Day glasses
After our niece borrowed our set of 10 ittala Kartio large tumblers for a bridal shower I realized we needed
to add 4 more tumblers to our collection. Over the years we have purchased many different types of basic beverage glasses but these rise to the top.
ProsThe ittala Kartio tumbler's design meets my husband's demand for a steady bottom and my demand for a simple, utilitarian tumbler to serve a wide variety of beverages.

Form and function in one
These glasses are expertly crafted. You can tell by the weight that they are supposed to withstand the test of time. And they are easy to hold -- my little one has never dropped his glass. I love the shape because it makes it easy for my sponge to clean every nook and cranny. Every guest I've had over can tell that this is premium, very high quality.

The perfect glass
Kartio is pure perfection! Elegant, modern, simple, sturdy but not clunky, and works for any and all type of use. Fancy dinner or glass of milk for kids. I finally replaced our odd collection of random glasses with a dozen of these. Now I feel like a grown-up. Then i ordered another dozen of the smaller size to complete the table setting.

Absolutely the finest luxury basic glass
I've been purchasing these for years now. They are the very best. The lines are simple and classic. They mix with modern as well as traditional settings. They wear beautifully. The only losses have been due to human error. They make a great wedding present because they will last for a long time, and look well. The color choice is wonderful.

Sand is so pretty
It doesn't sound pretty, but Sand actually has a purple tinge to the thicker base that is hypnotizing. I have an assortment of Kartio colors, but Sand may be my favorite.

nice, very nice
Well, I'd love the original versions with the super thin glass, but lets face it these are more practical and sturdy.

The clear glass is nice, not boring, and mixes well to balance with the light blues and greens of other Kartio glasses you may set at the table.

Practically speaking, most folks seem to prefer to drink from light or clear glasses over the dark blues...
ProsThe design is great and they are reasonably strong, yet visually refined. The size is not only good for juice but is also nice for simple wines at a casual gathering, instead of conventional stem wine glasses. They also work well for a whiskey or bourbon glass.

Nice shape and color
I like Kartio medium tumblers and use them everyday. They are very sturdy and good size for juice or V8 at breakfast. Sea Blue color is great, but you can see some strain around the edges in this color. I bought two sets, and two out of four has some strain. Sea Blue is softer to keep shape during cooling down than other colors. Anyway, I love this color and have several items from Kartio lines. You cannot find any strain in mouth-blown Kartio Sea Blue items.
ProsShape. Color.
ConsSome strain only in Sea Blue Medium Tumbler (My Sea blue Large Tumblers and mouth-blown litems have no strain at all.)

Kartio Tumblers
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.
