Founded in Helsinki in 1935, Artek blazed a trail for the synthesis of art, architecture, and technology. Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl launched the firm “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living.” Artek continues to produce the canonic designs of Finland’s twentieth-century masters. It also works with today’s leading international designers on furnishings, lighting, and accessories with a similarly radical spirit of form, function, and poetic simplicity.
Bureau of Merchants sells all Artek designs.
