Artek, including the Alvar Aalto furniture line, is renowned as one of the most innovative contributions to modern design.
Artek was founded in 1935 by four young idealists, Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen and Nils-Gustav Hahl. The business idea of the company was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of habitation by exhibitions and other educational means.” The founders of Artek advocated 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.
Long-term durability and high quality combined with a clean-lined form are the essential elements in the creation of every single product that bears the Artek name. Artek's comprehensive furnishing system can be used in all kinds of situations: public spaces, offices, museums, schools, hotels and libraries. Artek has a stock program for residential clients as well.
