postwarpop: Kartio glass set • Kaj Franck • Nuutajarvi • Finland 1958

Kartio glass set, Kaj Franck, Nuutajarvi, Finland Kartio is Finnish for "cone." These six stackable glasses come with their matching pitcher.

Designer Alvar Aalto touched something special when he created this simplified, free and timeless form of the Aalto vase, which leaves the end user to decide the possibilities of the combinations and purpose of the object. The new colour Salmon pink brings a warm, translucent and delicate tone to the collection, and it honours Iittala’s exceptionally clear glass in a magnificent way, creating a warm, light atmosphere around it. www.iittala.com
