Overview

An Alvar Aalto Design. Reinterpreted by Comme de Garcons.
By Artek.

80 years ago, designer and Artek co-founder Alvar Aalto tested the sturdiness of his new design by throwing the prototype of Stool 60 repeatedly on the floor. Facing successful results, he exclaimed "We'll make thousands of these one day!" He did not know then that Stool 60 would become one of the most iconic figures of modern design, selling millions to date. Throughout 2013, Artek commemorates Stool 60's 80th Anniversary by introducing a series of limited edition stools, designed by a select few architects and designers.

The Comme de Garcons Anniversary Edition is reminiscent of fashions seen on the runways of this acclaimed Japan based fashion label. Artek design director Ville Kokkonen, who worked previously with Rei Kawakubo, head of the Comme de Garcons label, expressed his admiration of Kawakubo as a collaborative partner, "We wanted to have special projects with creative people that we really value, and Rei is one of them."
