Artek turns 77 years Today!

Old doesn’t mean outdated! Artek turns 77 years today.
It’s been 77 years since Oct 15, 1935 when four young idealists, Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen and Nils-Gustav Hahl got a business idea for a company that was “t
o sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of habitation by exhibitions and other educational means.” The founders of Artek advocated a new kind of environment for everyday life. They believed in a grand synthesis of the arts and wanted to make a difference in town planning as well as architecture and design.
