Founded in 1881, Littala is the most prominent Finnish glass company. Specialized in Glasswares and art glass Littala was driven by the talent of iconic designers and glass artist like Alvar Aalto, Kaj Franck, Erkki Versanto, Timo Sarpaneva, Tapio Wirkkala, Lisa Johansson-Pape, Gunnel Nyman and Alfred Gustafsson. In 1929 Iitala has been recognized for their glass and crystal at the Barcelona World Exposition. After finishing second place at the1932 Karhula-Iitalia design contest, Aino Aalto presented her winning work internationally. Alvar Aalto’s most iconic vase was first presented at the Paris 1937 world exhibition and is still produced today. After winning at the 1946 Littala design contest, two great talents joined forces and gained free reign over the company’s art direction: Tapio Wirkkala and Kaj Franck. Together they changed the perception of modern glass work.

Kaj Franck (born in Finland, 1911-1989) studied furniture design in 1932 at the Central School of Industrial Design in Helsinki. After school he worked as an illustrator, interior designer, decorator and textile designer before being inducted into the army forces in 1939. In 1945 Kaj Franck became the head designer of the company Arabia of Finland. Kai Franck joined the glass company Littala after winning the 1947 Littala glass design competition alongside Tapio Wirkkala. Kaj Frank designed the now classic Littala water jugs series between 1946 and 1950.
