Functionality and timeless aesthetics are essential in the creation of every product that bears the Artek name. Founded in Finland in 1935 by four self-proclaimed idealists, Artek stands strong on the company's ethics, product aesthetics and ecology. With Artek, this translates into a combination of high quality timeless classics and strong design ideology. With products that offer the Scandinavian look-clean lines, minimal fluff-Artek has built a line that incorporates an approachable appeal into modern furniture and lighting design.
Why We Love Artek
Artek's design philosophy brings a human perspective to modernism. By blending functionalism with form and sculptural simplicity with the emotional warmth of wood, Artek's furniture harmonizes with architecture. The international launch of the patented "L-leg" design in 1937 put Artek on the map. Its characteristically smooth, bent look is applied to chair and table legs. The A330S Pendant by designer Alvar Aalto is a look he first established in 1939, and the look is proving Finnish design's timeless appeal, making an appearance in spaces from cafeteria-type eateries to high fashion clothing stores.
Artek has since introduced the Y-leg and X-leg to the furniture market, giving comfortable seating a simple facelift. For example, the Domus Chair, put simply, "makes sense," and it works in a number of arenas. In modern lighting, Artek has created a range of products from fanciful floor lamps to personality-filled pendants, each design understated yet uniquely contemporary.
