An icon of modern design, Alvar Aalto’s three-legged Stool 60 celebrates its 80th anniversary this year. As one of the best-known design items in the world, Stool 60 is the quintessential piece of the Artek collection. In Stockholm, the anniversary year will kick off with two colourful editions of Stool 60. At Stockholm Furniture Fair, Artek will also show the strength of its portfolio: Kiki, Lento Lounge, the Artek abc Collection and new colourful lighting fixtures together with the Artek classics designed by Alvar Aalto. The booth is designed by the German designer Mike Meiré.
The Artek abc Collection consists of small objects that integrate naturally into the rest of Artek’s furniture collection. The title is a reference to the alphabet of living. At the Stockholm Furniture Fair, Artek presents new additions to the abc Collection, such as small objects that feature the H55 fabric pattern designed in 1955 by Elissa Aalto, and a stationery collection by design studio Greige.
