Artek Furniture and Lighting
We have always loved Finnish design icon, Artek, however this love is so much deeper now having visited the Artek factory in Turku (Finland) early in 2018 and ganing an even greater appreciation for the detailed deign, history and craftsmanship that still goes into every single Artek product.
Artek was founded in Helsinki in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. Their goal was “to sell furniture and to 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.
Please contact us directly if you are interested in any Artek products as we can order anything from their collection.
