One of the great architects of the 20th century, Alvar Aalto, founded Artek in 1935 along with his wife, Aino Aalto, Marie Gullichsen and Nils-Gustav Hahl. The firm pioneered steaming and bending birch wood and the original stool 60 (1933) is considered an icon of functional, modern furniture.

The Artek collection consists of furniture, lighting, and accessories designed by Finnish masters and leading international designers. Combining modern production methods with expert handcraftsmanship, Artek furniture is manufactured in keeping with the original vision of Alvar Aalto.

Regional sourcing, sustainability, and safety are pursued without compromise, both by Artek and its partners, ensuring ethical manufacture and design of the highest quality.
