Finnish design furniture Artek was founded in 1935 by four Finns led by the modern architect Alvar Aalto. Artek was set up in 1935 to market Aalto’s furniture, lamps and textiles, particularly on international markets where Artek focused its operations from the initial stages.
Today Artek is renowned as being one of the most innovative contributors to modern design, building on the heritage of Alvar Aalto. Functionality and timeless aesthetics are the essential elements in the creation of every product that bears the Artek name. Artek’s comprehensive furniture system is based on the original idea of standards and systems, which has its origin from Alvar Aalto’s L-system.
