Artek is celebrating the 80th anniversary of Alvar Aalto’s three-legged Stool 60 with a unique installation and a pop-up store at KaDeWe, Berlin, from April 25th to June 1st, 2013.
A quintessential piece of modern design, Stool 60 is one of the best-known design items in the world, and an iconic piece in the Artek collection. Today, it’s being revisited by international designers and fans including designer Nao Tamura, fashion designer Mads Nørgaard, Comme des Garçons, Monocle, Tom Dixon and Mike Meiré. Their creations are now on display at Artek’s pop-up debut at Berlin’s legendary high-end department store, the KaDeWe.
This special collaboration with the capital’s premier luxury multi-brand store not only marks Artek’s inaugural steps toward the Central European retail market, it also celebrates Artek’s first appearance in Berlin, in a public venue open to all design enthusiasts!
