Alvar Aalto began designing furnishings as early as the 1920's. They were a natural and important extension of his architectural thinking. To Aalto, a piece of furniture was not simply an isolated object in space. He was a comprehensive artist in the architectural and design fields who focused his attention on even the smallest of details.
Artek was established in 1935 to market his furniture, lamps and fabrics. A long tradition as a manufacturer of outstanding articles for daily use has made Artek an internationally known and recognized quality design brand.
Aalto's beautiful and functional furniture is still very popular around the world in spite of changing styles.View other products by Alvar Aalto

Today Artek is renowned as being one of the most innovative contributors to modern design, building on the heritage of Alvar Aalto. Functionality and timeless aesthetics are the essential elements in the creation of every product that bears the Artek name.View other products from Artek
