Artek collections become timeless design icons.

Founded in 1935 as an intersection of art and technology, Artek still manages to impress with its outstanding furniture, made along the lines of Alvar Aalto. Together with Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen and Nils-Gustav Hahl, some big names in international design, the company manages to create pieces that improve people's daily lives and contribute to a modern culture of living. Artek's latest collections include reissued, versatile and always functional pieces of furniture, such as Stool 60, redesigned in shades, and the Atelier bar stool, made in Italy from locally produced wood.

    60 Stool

    Heath's mastery of color and Artek's long experience with wood merge to create a limited edition of Stool 60. Moonstone, Bright Blue and Glacier echo the countless shades of blue of the Pacific and Baltic coasts, encapsulating the creative spirit of both brands. Stackable and playful, thanks to the different heights of the legs they can be used as seats, supports or practical tables.

    With its only four kilograms of weight, the compact Atelier bar stool joins the collection created by Artek in collaboration with Taf Studio. Perfect for both public and private spaces, the Atelier bar stool reveals the pure nature of solid wood and emphasizes its geometric lines, symmetries and inclination, designed to offer a comfortable seating experience. Produced in Italy from local wood essences, it is a versatile and informal piece of furniture, a clear example of contemporary Nordic design.

    Tupla

    Design meets functionality in Tupla, literally "double" in Finnish. This black powder-coated die-cast zinc coat rack with two rings seems to leave a light, sophisticated mark on the wall. Simple in form but extremely practical in use, Tupla becomes an essential piece of furniture.

    Featuring a solid stainless steel frame, flexible elements and a rope in black polyester or natural linen, the Rope chair breaks all conventional patterns and uses a soft element to define its shape. Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec design studio experiments with rope, typically used in marine applications, as a structural part, letting the chair adapt to the user. Its smoothness leaves room for dynamic movements and changes of position, allowing for new ways of sitting.
