Artek was founded in 1935 in Helsinki, Finland, by four visionary minds: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. Their shared passion for creating functional yet artful furniture and lighting pieces laid the foundation for a design legacy that continues to captivate hearts and homes worldwide.
Drawing inspiration from nature, Finnish traditions, and functionalism, Artek's designs strike a harmonious balance between simplicity, practicality, and elegance. Each piece showcases a deep understanding of materials, resulting in a seamless blend of form and function—a testament to the brand's commitment to sustainable design and the art of living well.
