Artek oy ab

Artek was founded in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. The business strategy of the company was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means”. The founders of Artek advocated a new kind of environment for everyday life. They believed in a grand synthesis of the arts and wanted to make a difference in architecture and design as well as in town planning.

The launch of Artek’s new selection of illustrated furniture took place in Tokyo at the Ginza Mitsukoshi department store on 13 March 2013. The beloved Moomins now have new adventures on Artek's classical furniture designed by Alvar Aalto. The familiar characters of Moomintroll, Snufkin and Little My are appearing on stool 60, children’s stool NE60 and chair N65, as well as on the round table 90B
