Artek presents Rival, the result of the first collaboration between Konstantin Grcic and Artek.
Rival is a universal chair suited for homes, public spaces and offices. Decidedly rooted in the Artek furniture tradition, it represents a modern and fresh approach to the wooden chair. The legs are milled from one piece of solid birch, taking on a fluid quality more similar to moulded plastic than timber, while the back and armrests are made of saw-cut birch lamella.
