Artek opens the Archizines exhibition in cooperation with do you read me?! Helsinki Satellite. Archizines celebrates the resurgence of alternative and independent architectural publishing around the world. The touring exhibition curated by Elias Redstone and initiated in collaboration with the Architectural Association, features 80 architecture magazines, fanzines and journals from over twenty countries that provide an alternative to the established architectural press. Edited by architects, artists and students, these publications provide new platforms for commentary, criticism and research into the spaces we inhabit and the practice of architecture. They make an important and often radical addition to architectural discourse and demonstrate a residual love for print matter in the digital age.

Small and Significant
Artek will present the first objects of its new abc Collection at the Maison&Objet fair in Paris in September. The abc Collection consists small objects that integrate naturally into the rest of Artek’s furniture collection. The title is a reference to the alphabet of living: the products serve the small needs of daily life and please the eye, bringing joy to the everyday. The objects in the abc Collection are functional and beautiful that all have their own place. The collection makes available unexpected, different and unique objects as a tribute to small production and art and crafts.
