Artek’s Drawing studio was for many years the creative hub of the company. Ever since Aino Aalto’s time, it remained an integral part of the company, being the unit where new designs were created and Artek’s exhibitions were planned.

Artek STUDIO is the natural continuum to the Drawing studio, the place where Artek’s new production takes form and product development takes place. Artek is continuously on the search for new, interesting and sustainable materials. During Alvar Aalto’s time, a large part of the furniture was planned for various architectural spaces. The designs were characterized by a strong system and standard thinking that is still today prevailing in the design process and philosophy.

Ville Kokkonen is Artek´s Design Director.
