Artek

Artek was founded in 1935 by Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen and Nils-Gustav Hahl in their pursuit of a new kind of environment for everyday life. They believed in a grand synthesis of the arts and wanted to make a difference in town planning as well as architecture and design.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks playful...not totally functional. You should have a really good context for this bench to make sense. Otherwise, it looks like you picked it up from a kindergarten garage sale. Slat top is also a little annoying if you're like me and put your keys aside you while you tie your shoes. They will fall through the bench to the ground.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean lines, practical and good quality bench I was looking for something that would look good with the furniture I already have. I looked for clean lines and light wood. I love the designs with bend wood and plywood. this bench is designed very well, feels and looks sturdy. I love it!
