Artek on Classicdesign.it
Artek was founded in 1935 in Helsinki by the young idealists Aino and Alvar Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl to “sell furniture and promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means.”
In keeping with the radical spirit of its founders, Artek today remains an innovative player in the world of modern design, developing new products at the intersection of design, architecture, and art.
The Artek collection consists of furniture, lighting, and accessories designed by Finnish masters and leading international designers. It stands for clarity, functionality, and poetic simplicity.
