Typically Scandinavian, the Scandia cutlery collection is a classic by Kaj Franck, a major figure in the history of Finnish design, several of whose creations feature in the Iittala catalogue. The collection has been used in many households for decades.

Simple yet distinctive, Scandia's design has been conceived to satisfy everyday needs. Solid and balanced in the hand, the grooved handles are easy to grip. The stainless steel enhances the design and withstands daily washing, both by hand and in the dishwasher.

Kaj Franck

Kaj Franck (1911-1989) is known as the “conscience of Finnish design.” Franck grew up in a world with elaborate dining services to sparse stone dishes. During his significant career, Franck asserted himself between the two extremes and profoundly changed our understanding of tableware. He utilized serial production to produce versatile, practical dishware at a reasonable price. Besides social consciousness, Franck’s distinct career was guided by the desire to seek the essential. He studied basic forms endlessly with special focus on proportions.

Franck was a professor at the Helsinki School of Art and Design. His work earned him international acclaim and numerous awards including Finland’s most prestigious design award, which is his namesake. Generations of Iittala consumers have purchased Franck’s successful Teema and Kartio series, making these standard household items a part of the classic design legacy of Kaj Franck.
