New York City / Artek by Vitra

Artek was founded in 1935 in Helsinki by the young idealists Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl “to sell furniture and promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means.” Today, Artek’s collection of furniture, lighting and accessories designed by Finnish masters and leading international designers comprises objects that are extraordinary in their clarity, functionality, and poetic simplicity. In the radical spirit of its founders, Artek remains one of the most innovative contributors to modern design. Artek has been a part of the Vitra Group since 2013.
