On September 6, 2013 Vitra acquired the Finnish company Artek.
A renowned design company founded in 1935 in Finland by architect Alvar Aalto and his wife Aino, art promoter Maire Gullichsen and art historian Nils-Gustav Hahl, Artek was built upon the radical business plan to “sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of habitation by exhibitions and other educational means.” Artek has become one of the most innovative contributors to modern design, building on the heritage of Alvar Aalto.
ARTEK 2ND CYCLE POP-UP CAFÉ AT PLY, HAMBURG 5 – 19 October 2013
Alvar Aalto’s furniture was introduced to the UK through an exhibition at Fortnum & Mason in 1933. Reflecting on the success of the exhibition, Skandium now presents ARTEK TODAY, an exhibition at our Marylebone store, inspiring contemporary living with these classic pieces.
Artek participates in the Habitare fair in Helsinki in two fabulous stands. Debuted at the Milan Furniture Fair, Ilmari Tapiovaara’s cheerfully light Lukki, the metal-frame furniture by Alvar and Aino Aalto, and Tapio Wirkkala’s iconic TW003 pendant are now launched on the Finnish market along with familiar design classics. The relaunch of design icons that have proved to be successful through the decades is a powerful message from Artek on the importance of genuine and sustainable design.
The iconic Stool 60, designed by Alvar Aalto in 1933, turns a venerable 80 this year. Stool 60 is Artek’s best selling product and one of the most famous design classics of all time internationally. Stool 60 represents a crystallization of the values of Artek concerning the importance of technology, art and ethics.
For the anniversary Artek has released many colourful special editions for Stool 60. These are available throughout the year 2013.
The Lento Lounge easy chair has received the 2012 GOOD DESIGN™ Award and the Interior Innovation Award – Winner2013.

In November, Artek will open a shop-in-shop in Malmstenbutiken in Stockholm. The well-known Swedish design retailer is revamping its entire store. Artek has been introducing new perspectives to homes since 1935. The three spaces in Malmstenbutiken will feature the Swedish launch of the new Artek abc Collection as well as new interpretations of classics by Alvar Aalto and Ilmari Tapiovaara. New product launches also include the Lento lounge chair with Lento side table by Harri Koskinen.
A Mondial Home in Berlin
Artek Deutschland GmbH has found a new home in the German capital of Berlin. Nestled in the heart of Europe, the impressive Mondial Home sends a clear signal that Artek is headed in the direction of the broader European market.
Putting Artek’s values into practice
Artek’s presence at the Habitare Furniture Fair is more diverse and broader than ever before. In addition to its own stand, Artek has partnered in the exhibition architecture of the Ahead! design area and in the Timeline special exhibition. Artek stand 7h31.
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.
Artek launches this week in Stockholm new additions to Lento Family, LENTO LOUNGE CHAIR AND SIDE TABLE, design Harri Koskinen 2011. Lento expresses the subtle design idiom arising from Nordic modernism. Koskinenʼs designs are sensible, argued and uncompromisingly elegant.
