Franck was born in 1911, when one's social status could be distinguished by a table setting. Later, he came to be known as the conscience of post-war Finnish design, thanks partly to his push for mass-produced, affordable dinnerware equally suited to informal and formal gatherings. The Mini Serving Set (see Shades of Gray: The New Finnish Basics) consists of a triangle, square, and circle and is available for $50 at Fjorn.
